2018 Honorary Geographer Address with Dr. Robert Bullard, Father of Environmental Justice

Robert Bullard presented his plenary talk, "The Quest for Environmental and Climate Justice: Why Race and Place Still Matter," on Thursday, April 12, during the 2018 AAG Annual Meeting in New Orleans. For more than three decades and in more than a dozen books, he has documented that healthy places and healthy people are highly correlated. The poorest of the poor within the United States have the worst health and live in the most degraded environments. Bullard’s lecture explored how the environment justice framework redefined environmentalism and challenged institutional racism and the dominant environmental protection paradigm. Much of his life’s work has been devoted to uncovering the underlying assumptions that contribute to and produce unequal protection and brings to the surface the ethical and political questions of “who gets what, when, where, why, and how much.” At the start of the session, AAG President Derek Alderman presented the 2018 Honorary Geographer Award to Dr. Bullard.

Congratulations Dr. Bullard on receiving this year's AAG Honorary Geographer Award (April 12, 2018)
