This trip explores the intersection of environmental racism, mass incarceration and re-entry, and racial justice in Camden, New Jersey and surrounding communities. Through direct service with the Center for Environmental Transformation in Camden, NJ and Inside Out Program with the Graterford State Prison in PA, participants will be able to articulate the following: 1) what environmental racism is and why it is important; 2) what impact environmental racism has on the Camden community; and 3) how mass incarceration is intersected with these environmental issues.
