UCSB Prof. Dr. David Pellow at Clarion Alley Murals in SF MissionRespected Author and Professor to Speak at Unitarian Universalist Church of Ventura

How are social inequality and environmental pollution related? Why is it important to address the suffering of marginalized humans and the degradation of the ecosystem simultaneously? You will not want to miss special guest speaker Dr. David Pellow who will answer these questions on August 26.

Dr. Pellow, a respected scholar, teacher, thought leader and author, will share with us highlights of his most recent book: What is Critical Environmental Justice?

Dr Pellow is the Dehlsen Chair and Professor of Environmental Studies and Director of the Global Environmental Justice Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He teaches courses on social change movements, environmental justice, human-animal conflicts, sustainability, and social inequality.

Dr. Pellow’s work explores how social justice and environmental preservation (both core Unitarian values!) are inextricably connected. Further, these twin objectives cannot be effectively addressed in isolation from each other. Hope for humanity and for the planet requires new ways of thinking and acting on our part. Join us as Dr. Pellow tells us about his work in this fascinating field of environmental justice.
