A quiet but powerful march took place in Philadelphia last week, indicating a new direction in the faith-driven environmental justice movement in America. 
Alaura Carter, the Climate Justice Associate at Sojourners and a member of the committee that organized the People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. in April, thinks that environment, like any other national issue, has a racial component.
“People of color in the United States are exposed to 38 percent more asthma-producing nitrogen dioxide than are White people.. [and] are twice as likely as Whites to live without potable water or modern sanitation.” — Alaura Carter, Climate Justice Associate at Sojourners
