Climate Cafe with Dr. Robert Bullard
From Kevin Cordy
We are pleased to host Dr. Robert Bullard, often referred to as the father of environmental justice. During this virtual Climate Café, Bullard will help us continue our ongoing exploration of climate justice and the disproportionate impact of climate change on communities of color and low-income communities.
Bullard is often described as the father of environmental justice. He is the former dean of the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University from 2011 to 2016, and currently is a Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy. Prior to TSU, he was the founding director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University.
