Our guest is Dr. Maria Cruz-Torres, an associate professor at the school of transborder studies at Arizona State University. She specializes in anthropology and environmental studies, with a focus on coastal communities and the intersection between the environment and gender. In our conversation, we talked about environmental racism. Cruz-Torres says the growing effects of climate change are disproportionately affecting communities of color.
