First Nations activists and racialized and marginalized women are at the heart of the battle for environmental justice. Speaking from communities disproportionally impacted by toxic exposures and environmental degradation, they are moving environmental concerns from the abstract “future of the planet” to the immediate health and social consequences of living with chronic exposure to toxic substances.
