Critical Environmental Justice Lab

The Critical Environmental Justice Lab at UC Berkeley was established in the Fall of 2017. Currently, its participants include: Michael Mascarenhas (coordinator), and Alejo Garcia Aguilera, Ataya Ceespooch, Mindy Price, Katherine Wolf – PhD graduate students in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy & Management (ESPM), and Jenny Rempel, and Ella Belfer – PhD students in Energy and Resources Group (ERG). The CEJ Lab’s purpose is to provide a space for students and faculty to cultivate a deeper understanding of the social and environmental relations that articulate at the conjuncture of environmental justice and systemic racism. The goal is to advance this critical perspective to help shape members’ theoretical and methodological approaches to research and teaching.
