Love Canal and the Movement for Environmental Health in the US

On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, Lois Gibbs, the director of the Center for Health, Environment, and Justice, will be speaking right here at Northeastern.

Gibbs gained national attention in 1978 when she organized the residents of Love Canal, New York in demanding to be relocated from a dump containing 20,000 tons of chemicals. Since then, Gibbs has founded the Center for Health, Environment, and Justice and worked as an environmental activist.

Join Gibbs, the Northeastern Environmental Justice Research Collaborative, the Social Science Environmental Health Research Institute, the Marine Science Center, the Sustainability Science and Policy Initiative, the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Ethics Institute, and the Husky Environmental Action Team for Wednesday’s discussion from 2:50 – 4:30PM in 305 Shillman.
