Academy Conversation: Why is Covid-19 disproportionately impacting environmental justice communities

End Date: 5/20/2020End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Join us for an Academy Conversation about COVID-19 and the Environment.

For over 30 years the environmental justice movement has been fighting the disproportionate risks that pollution poses to low-income populations and communities of color. Now we know that the impacts of COVID-19 are also unequally distributed, with infection and fatality rates higher among communities with higher environmental stresses. Join us for a free, virtual discussion on Zoom with Academy experts and advocates as we examine the connections between the pandemic and environmental justice.

Moderator: Alexis Schulman, Dolan Fellow, the Academy’s Patrick Center for Environmental Research; Assistant Professor, Department of Biodiversity, Earth and Environmental Science


  • Saleem Chapman, Deputy Director of the Philadelphia Office of Sustainability
  • Lubna Ahmed, Director of Environmental Health at WE ACT for Environmental Justice in NYC
