White Supremacist Roots of American Environmentalism

White Supremacist Roots of American Environmentalism

Do you consider yourself an environmentalist? Do you know whose land you're currently on and how it has been managed by Indigenous peoples since time immemorial? Have you ever learned about or considered how the contemporary environmental movement has a history rooted in white supremacy and settler colonialism? Are you ready to start unpacking these themes to do sustainability work that recognizes the white supremacist legacy of environmentalism that worked to disenfranchise Indigenous peoples and other communities of color?

If so, you are invited to attend this presentation hosted by Katie Koscielak in the Office of Sustainability and Dr. Kaitlin Reed, Assistant Professor in the Native American Studies department.

Participants will be challenged to think differently about their role in the environmental, sustainability, and climate action movements in order to align with themes of justice and decolonization.
