*Thursday, March 5, 2009 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.* Join us for a conversation with
author Daniel Faber based on his book, "Capitalizing on Environmental
Injustice: The Polluter-Industrial Complex in the Age of Globalization"
(Rowman & Littlefield, 2008). "Capitalizing..." is a comprehensive
assessment of the environmental justice movement, examining the achievements
and challenges confronting the movement, along with an emphasis on new
strategies of environmental problem-solving and innovations in environmental
policy. Download flyer

<http://encuentro5.org/home/sites/default/files/flyer-2009-01-15_0.pdf>On
the faculty of Northeastern University, Daniel Faber has studied
environmental injustice and called attention to radical inequalities. In
2001, Faber found that “If you live in a community of color in
Massachusetts, for example, the chances are 19 times higher that you live in
one of the 25 most environmentally-burdened communities in the state.” He is
also an expert on corporate influence over public policy.

Daniel's books include:
