Waste: One Woman’s Fight Against America’s Dirty Secret; a virtual lecture by Catherine Coleman Flowers Online

Legal Aid of North Carolina and the Durham Eviction Diversion Program host a virtual lecture by Catherine Coleman Flowers. This event has been graciously sponsored by the Duke Civil Justice Clinic and the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University.

Flowers will present research related to her recent book, Waste: One Woman’s Fight Against America’s Dirty Secret. A MacArthur Genius Fellow and environmental justice advocate, Flowers works to expose how inadequate disposal systems for human waste not only subject many Americans to disgusting living conditions that have resulted in the reappearance of diseases and parasites, but also work to keep them poor and criminalize poverty by subjecting them to fines, arrests, and even imprisonment.

The Zoom details for the lecture may be found here. Advance registration is required.
