Trace the Roots: Voices Left Out of Environmental Conversations

August 26, 2020

This documentary features Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali, Raya Salter, Nadia Seeteram and the VLS Environmental Justice Law Society (EJLS) executive board. The major theme of this short film is to examine and discuss ways traditional environmental spaces continue to exclude BIPOC voices. More specifically, this documentary was inspired by the lack of response and purposeful silence from environmental organizations throughout the upswing in momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement. There is NO climate justice without environmental/social justice!


Presented by: The VLS Environmental Justice Law Society  (@vlsejls)

Production/Cinematography by: Anthony Marques (@begr8te) Featuring: Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali (@mustafasantiagoali), Raya Salter (@greengirlmagic), and Nadia Seeteram (@thealmostphd).
