Localizing Green Equity and Climate Justice Policies in Municipal Jobs Programs
Fifth Annual Ethnic Studies Distinguished Alumni Speaker Series
Lecture by Dr. Sekou Franklin (SCU Class of 1994), Associate Professor of Political Science at Middle Tennessee State University
Thursday, 5/17/12
4 to 5 p.m.
Wiegand Room, Arts and Sciences Building

The Green For All (GFA) movement was initiated by activists and policy makers to give special attention to the intersection of pollution reduction policies, economic development and anti-poverty initiatives in communities with chronic unemployment and underemployment.

GFA activists insist that pollution reduction policies and emerging opportunities in the clean energy economy should be anchored in racial equity and an economic inclusive agenda that provides employment opportunities for residents of economically distressed communities.

Dr. Franklin's lecture examines green job initiatives in more than 80 municipalities.
