We will unpack some of the intersections between environmental degradation and unhealthy working conditions experienced by frontline communities. Impacts are unique due to the type of work, place, ability, access, nationality, and race and the application of workplace safety protocols. We will hear from environmental justice and workers rights advocates on how they are navigating unsafe or unhealthy workplaces, and actions that are being taken to address inequities, and achieve environmental and worker justice for all.
