My Vision for the future is one that works on reconciling specific injustices from environmental racism, while also aiming towards a future where all communities and groups are consulted on decisions that both directly and indirectly affect them. It is important that us as a society find the value in continuing to support diversity, celebrate cultural practices and care for each other equally.
As we saw in the "There's Something in the Water"documentary, there were various examples of how minority communities were directly exposed to harmful practices, such as in Halifax where a garbage dump site was made in a primarily African - American community. It saddened me to watch the harmful effects seen today of many residents in that community dying from cancer as a result from exposure to the dump site, and the little that is being done to reconcile them. This is just one example of how environmental racism has lethally effected many communities. As we become more aware of these injustices, it is important to continue to educate and have progressive conversations not only in our own communities, but on a global scale. #UnleashValues #Reconciliation #Justice #GlobalChange
