Friday Video: Kerry Washington on Environmental Racism
In this video for the Sundance Channel's Ecoist program, Kerry Washington breaks down some of the issues involved with environmental racism - how environmental issues disproportionately impact communities of color.
Key idea from the video: "Think global and act local is really important, but remember that local can be the other side of the tracks, or the other side of the freeway. That's still your community."
