@SenDuckworth @SenKamalaHarris @SenBooker Thank you! Pollution and the lack of clean, running water impact so many people of color and poor people in America. More has to be done to prevent deforestation and the clearing of trees where animal and insect ecosystems thrive and trees provide shade, oxygen, a breeze for us.
@SenDuckworth @SenKamalaHarris @SenBooker Booker and Harris pass good legislation but they fail at implementation. Tried to discuss w/ their staffs- no response. First Step Act is useless. @OfficialFBOP lies giving testimony. Be careful. What you want may not actually get done.
@SenDuckworth @SenKamalaHarris @SenBooker Yes! Justice has a through-line. The horrors we do to the environment, we allow done to everything/everyone. It includes the horrors we allow done to animals. The mindset of violence spreads... "As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields." Tolstoy
@SenDuckworth @LadyCyra @SenKamalaHarris @SenBooker As a sociologist who has taught both environmental justice and environmental sociology at the university level, I look forward to comparing the House and Senate versions. Cory Booker, I think, would be more experienced as a former NJ mayor to see the Street Science consequences.
