The Jefferson Market Library of The New York Public Library is pleased to offer substantive college-level courses to the public for free. Taught by local University academics and professors, our next course is Environmental Justice and Neighborhood Action.

This five-week course introduces students to the history, concept, and movement of environmental justice. Students will learn about environmental justice from the perspective of race and gender, and study the role of community action in achieving environmental justice. As part of the course, students will identify projects that involve putting environmental justice principles into neighborhood action.
