Floods, Hogs, and Poisoned Air

In this episode of Connect the Dots, Rob Verchick interviews Leslie Fields, Director of Environmental Justice and Community Partnerships at the Sierra Club, and John Hughes, an attorney representing clients harmed by giant hog CAFOs in North Carolina, connecting the dots between environmental harm, social justice, noxious odors, and dangerous pollution. This episode was taped live at the Center for Progressive Reform’s Regulation as Social Justice conference in June 2019.
