This is reflected in the fight against waste from concentrated animal feeding operations, fossil fuel pipelines, and contaminated drinking water in North Carolina, as discussed in this episode with Jovita Lee, Senior Environmental Justice Campaigner with the Center for Biological Diversity. Jovita explains how these situations in North Carolina reflect challenges facing communities of color around the country and that there are opportunities to ensure cleaner water through regulations and permitting. She also talks about the need to focus resources on the organizations that have championed environmental justice for decades.
