CALEXICO—Imperial Geographies

CALEXICO—Imperial Geographies: How Border Policy, Pollution, and Labor Create the Modern Salton Sea and Imperial Valley examines the hidden inequities and environmental justice issues that disproportionately affect residents of the Imperial and Mexicali Valley regions. It highlights the work of local residents, and asks citizens across the U.S. to take responsibility for human and ecological rights in the region. A series of paintings, photographs, writing, and video interviews with residents, workers, and activists bring the human stories behind environmental justice issues to life.
