Youth (Fall 1990)

Volume 1, No.3: October 1990

Welcome to our third issue of Race, Poverty & the Environment. This issue is the first of our theme issues, with the topic being youth. We have tried to pull together articles and resources that explore and analyze race, poverty, and the environment as they apply to children and youth, to examine the ways that children are most vulnerable to environmental hazards, and to show ways that children are in the forefront of responding to this nation's environmental crises. We think - not immodestly - that this issue showcases the diversity of approaches to environmental problems.

Women of Color (Winter 1991)

At the Grassroots * As community Leaders * In "Traditional" Environmental Careers * Redefining the Movement (Volume 1, No.4: Winter 1991)

This issue is the second of our theme issues, with our focus on women of color in the environmental movement. We have submissions from all over the country--some encouraging, others not so. All the pieces are empowering to people interested in the effect women of color are having on the environmental and social justice movement, and the progress being made. We tried to solicit our material from women of color, where possible -- we felt that the most honest and direct way to get the real story was to have the people most involved share their views.

IMF Riot and Urban Problems (Winter/Spring 1993)

Special Issue Produced in Cooperation with the United Church of Christ
(Vol.3, No.4/Vol.4, No.1: Winter/Spring 1993)

Since its early inception at the beginning of the last century, the more established environmental movement has shown an overwhelming tendency to focus on the problems of the larger environment, more remote in space and time, while ignoring the ones where most people live. It has had relatively little to say about the dense concentrations of large numbers of people engaging in occupations other than mining, farming, ranching, and fishing. Yet seventy percent of Americans, and almost half of humanity, live in cities. Many global environmental problems result from the way we live in such urban communities.
