It’s World Environment Day today, the United Nation’s primary day for encouraging worldwide action to protest our environment.

This week we are listening, learning, and working out how we can do more. For World Environment Day, we are sharing some articles about the intersection of environmental injustice and racism, that we have found helpful to understand this issue. It is by no means comprehensive, and we welcome suggestions.
