0a4e36edb2e7d4cea22c9033ee6bee55-huge-tiAs the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we see disproportionate numbers of Black people becoming infected and dying from the disease. Leaders in the environmental justice community know this disparity all too well, and in June the National Black Environmental Justice Network was relaunched to help communities of color address the inequities that place them in harm's way. Tina Johnson, director of NBEJN, joins us to talk about those disparities and how the network is fighting for environmental justice.
