In 1982, residents of Warrenton, North Carolina gathered together for six weeks of protest against the placement of a toxic waste landfill in their community. That protest was one of the first and largest movements against environmental racism to receive national attention, serving as a launching point for the Environmental Justice Movement.

Now 40 years later, we at Duke University and across the state of North Carolina celebrate all that the Environmental Justice Movement has been and evaluate the path forward as environmental hazards and climate change continue to place a disparate burden on low-income and communities of color.

Join us for a semester of events commemorating the EJ movement and all involved.
