Join Dr. Melissa Checker for a discussion around her award-winning book The Sustainability Myth. Focusing on industrial waterfronts and historically underserved places like Harlem and Staten Island’s North Shore, Dr. Checker takes an in-depth look at the dynamics of environmental gentrification while highlighting the valiant efforts of local environmental justice activists who work across racial, economic, and political divides to challenge sustainability’s false promises and create truly viable communities.
