Winter Break Resource List
Continue learning about the intersections between sustainability and social justice this winter break.
Winter break is almost here, Bulldogs! Congratulations on finishing this semester. We know that it hasn’t been easy, and we’re proud of you for persevering. This past semester we’ve learned about some of the many intersections between sustainability and social justice, and continue to work on issues related to environmental racism, injustice, and privilege in sustainability. We’ve compiled a list of some of our office’s favorite resources to continue anti-racism work. Consider checking out some of these resources during break and keep making connections to the intersectionalities between sustainability and social justice.
Enjoy your much-deserved break and we’ll see you next semester!
