In partnership with The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation, and Corbin Hill Food Project, WE ACT will host a Earth Day book talk on “Power, Privilege, and Environmental Protection,” featuring Dr. Dorceta Taylor who will present her new book, The Rise of the American Conservation Movement: Power, Privilege, and Environmental Protection.

Dr. Taylor will speak on how race, class, and gender have influenced the environmental conservation movement, and how the movement has benefited from contributions by poor and working class people, people of color, women, and indigenous people.

The book is published by Duke University Press. Dr. Taylor is James E. Crowfoot Collegiate Chair, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Professor of Environmental Sociology at the University of Michigan.
