Prof. Priscilla Ybarra, Associate Professor, University of North Texas, will be talking about environmental justice and careers in this field. Among the discussed issues: Who takes responsibility for climate change? Not who thinks about it, or who conducts research on it, or who feels guilty about it, but who, in fact, takes material day-to-day responsibility for the way climate change impacts the human sustaining environment on this planet? For people of color and the working class, climate change is not a pending outcome but a daily reality. Disasters such as wildfire and hurricanes only exacerbate what already exists. The second half of the event will be an informal discussion with students about their career choices.
