Richmond, California has more asthma-related emergency room visits and hospitalizations than anywhere else in the county, and time and time again, data shows that people of color are disproportionately impacted. However, residents are fighting back.

Join the Exploratorium for a conversation about the environmental racism struggles Richmond faces, and hear from prominent local environmental justice organizations about their work to connect with the land as a form of resistance—educating the public, empowering residents, shaping policy, and more.
