Confronting Environmental Racism
From plastics to cosmetics, fashion, fertilizer, and more, petrochemicals are everywhere in our daily lives, seeping into our air, water, soil, food, and bloodstreams. As the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy proceeds, many corporations are trying to ramp up petrochemical and plastic production to stay in business. While all Americans are affected, some communities are affected much more than others. As Franciscans, we are called to stand with our sisters and brothers who have been most directly affected.

The oil, gas and petrochemical industry have long placed their facilities in areas inhabited by Black, Brown, Indigenous, or poor communities deemed “sacrifice zones.” It’s time for us to stand with communities on the frontlines of this environmental racism.

Franciscan Action Network and the Franciscan Federation are pleased to present a 4-part webinar series on Confronting Environmental Racism.
