BlackLivesMatter, Criminalization, and Disaster Justice

The #blacklivesmatter movement has made the dehumanization of and violence inflicted on African Americans visible. The ways in which the criminal justice system metes out violence towards people of color are manifold. One little-discussed facet of this violence is that which results from, and is hidden by, disaster response. As we prepare for more frequent and more damaging disasters, it behooves us, on this, the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall, to render visible how climate change and the inequities of the criminal justice system intersect and compound, as stated by #BlackLivesMatter, “the loss of healthy and thriving Black life and well-being.”
