Last year marked 40 years since the Warren County protests in North Carolina, which gave rise to the environmental justice movement. Over the subsequent decades, issues of environmental justice have taken increasing prevalence in discussions around environmental law. In this panel at the North Carolina Bar Association's annual Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Law Section Program, Robinson Bradshaw attorney Sean Sullivan joined three fellow panelists to explain how they approach this issue from their respective positions in private practice, government, nonprofit and community-based organizations. The panel highlighted successes seen in the environmental justice movement to date and the challenges that are still ahead.
