Presented by: Steve Lerner Image

Date/Time: Monday, September 27, 2010 at 4:30 PM (Reception to Follow)

Location: Civic Square Building, Special Events Forum (33 Livingston
Ave, New Brunswick, N.J.)

Author Steve Lerner will be discussing his newly-released book,
"Sacrifice Zones: The Front Lines of Toxic Chemical Exposure in the
United States (MIT Press, 2010).  In “Sacrifice Zones,” Lerner tells
the stories of twelve communities—from Brooklyn to Pensacola—that rose
up to fight the industries and military bases causing
disproportionately high levels of chemical pollution.

Lerner is the Research Director at Commonweal, a non-profit that focuses on
environmental health issues in Bolinas, California. He also wrote
"Diamond: A Struggle for Environmental Justice in Louisiana's Chemical
Corridor" and a number of other books on social justice issues.

Sacrifice Zones is the first lecture in the Space of Democracy Lecture Series.

This event is co-sponsored by the Edward J. Bloustein School of
Planning and Public Policy.
