He’s the sustainability education manager with Urban Green Lab, and he’s working to implement a new Environmental Justice Initiative which will focus on helping distressed communities improve their health and lives. In this episode, Patrick explains why Nashville’s Black and Brown communities are disproportionately affected by environmental problems, and also why they have the most to gain from sustainability efforts.
