Gender Inequality in the Context of Environmental and Disaster Risk in the Military

Time: 12-1:30pm EDT / 9-10:30am PDT

Military Veterans find themselves impacted by chemical exposures as a hazard of War (Burn Pits). Likewise, the physical and mental health of the family structure are affected, such as female caregivers, a wife (partner), sister, mother, or children.

The effects of the burn pits are environmental discrimination.
Exposures happen in close proximity to where the military live, work and recreate. And, since women do not self-identify if they have military service, m
arginalized communities need to be inclusive in the conversation of environmental and disaster risk.   

This event will host an interactive discussion about education information, environmental discrimination, and advocacy.
