Where's the Diversity in the Environmental Movement?

This is a segment from Sound Bites, our series about our food system, and focused on an article written for The Bay Journal by Whitney Pipkin called “The ‘Green Ceiling': Environmental organizations lack diversity.” Pipkin’s article examines ”The State of Diversity in Environmental Organizations,” a report issued by the Green 2.0 working group.

Our panel of guests included: Whitney Pipkin, writer on food, agriculture and the environment for The Bay Journal, Fellow of the Institute for Journalists of Natural resources, and blogger at thinkabouteat.com; Fred Tutman, Patuxent Riverkeeper; Dr. Dorceta Taylor,  Professor, Environmental Justice Field of Studies Coordinator, Past Chair of the Environment and Technology Section of the American Sociological Association at the University of Michigan, and author of the report we are discussing and also Toxic Communities:  Environmental Racism, Industrial Pollution, and Residential Mobility; and Jacqueline Patterson, Director of the NAACP Climate Justice Initiative.
