Social Justice in Diverse Suburbs

A great way to celebrate my move to Leeds - my piece with Lisa Feldstein in Chris Neidt's new edited volume from Temple University Press is now out! A great series of articles about struggles in the new American suburbia.

The chapter examines the interaction of racial and environmental politics in Richmond, California in the wake of the election of a white, Green Party mayor. Richmond is much in the news these days - deservedly so - and the chapter sheds some light on the background to these developments.
