Description: This new report from the US Department of Agriculture's Forest Service focuses on environmentalism and different groups of people. "The paper posits that race, class, and gender had profound effects on people's environmental experiences, and consequently their activism and environmental discourses." The report details the history of the environmental movement, focusing on more than the dominant perspective. Four "major pathways of environmental activism" are identified and discussed in terms of race, class, and gender. All 60 pages can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.
