October Theme: Social Justice
This month's theme is social justice. There is a strong connection between sustainability and social justice. Although low income countries and minority communities contribute the least to climate change and environmental health issues, they are often the first to experience the effects. Within the Macalester community it is important to include social justice in sustainability conversations. Learn more about these issues and how you can become involved!
