Environmental Justice: Lois Gibbs

October 24, 2019 by Sean McMahon and Sara Harper


A few weeks ago the Lister Hill Center for Health Policy co-sponsored a visit from Lois Gibbs, often called the Mother of the Superfund. She guest-lectured in a few classes and met with community members in Birmingham. We had the wonderful opportunity to sit down and chat with Ms. Gibbs over lunch at Lucy’s. We were able to get to know her a bit more and hear about her 40 years of Environmental Justice (EJ) work.

If you missed her, you can listen to the podcast she recorded with the Office of Public Health Practice. You can view Ms. Gibbs’s lecture here
