Abstract:

Giovanna Di Chiro is Director of Environmental Programs at Nuestras RaĆ­ces, Inc. and Research Associate at the Five College Women's Studies Research Center. She has published widely on the intersections of race, gender, and environmental justice with a focus on women's activism and policy change addressing environmental health disparities in lower income communities. She is completing a book Embodied Ecologies: Science, Politics, and Environmental Justice. Her current work examines environmental justice activists’ reframing of the climate change debate to focus on the local, bodily impacts of wide-scale environmental problems like global warming. Giovanna collaborates with environmental justice organizations to conduct community-based research on environmental health concerns and on developing culturally relevant sustainability initiatives.
