Race, Place & the Law: Perspectives on Environmental Racism, Grassroots Resistance, and Law and Policy in Nova Scotia

In Nova Scotia, Mi’kmaw and African Nova Scotian communities are threatened disproportionately by polluting industries and other environmental harms. How do communities organize to resist environmental racism, and how can law and policy help to secure communities’ access to justice?
