Abstract:
A small Chapel Hill environmental group called the Student Environmental Action Coalition has become a national coalition of 30,000 students. The group deals with issues that affect the natural environment, and also issues that affect the man-made environment. At the group’s national conference, the environmentalists were encouraged to confront issues of race, class, and social justice. This mindset and other details behind how the group has expanded from a small, Chapel Hill to a large, nationwide group are explored.
