This session seeks to discuss the causes and consequences of environmental racism. Both the pandemic, as well as the climate crisis and the catastrophes that result from them, affect people differently depending on their race. Minority ethnic groups continue to be removed from large centers, thus occupying the peripheries, slopes, hills, and flooded areas, becoming increasingly vulnerable to impending natural disasters.
