We'll hear from Jo Banner, co-founder and co-director of The Descendants Project.

Jo champions environmental justice causes, challenging systems that exploit people descended from the enslaved men and women who were forced to work on plantations. A resident of Louisiana's Cancer Alley, Jo will highlight the connections between the sites of today's petrochemical plants and those of former sugarcane plantations.
