Dr. Hena Ahmad, Faculty Mentor

Racism is not only a social issue but an environmental one too. Situations such as the Flint water crisis exhibit environmental racism and the reality of the matter at hand. Looking at the lack of regulation of Environmental Protection Agency's laws and support of its mission statement, coupled with real world examples, an in-depth analysis reveals one clear answer: the EPA needs to closely regulate pollution and water contamination in order to eradicate environmental racism.
