As we are going to press, I have just learned that Urban Habitat has suspended publication of Race Poverty & the Environment (RP&E). RP&E will be exploring joint production of the journal with other organizations doing complementary work and friends of RP&E will be researching alternative models for sustaining the journal. To join this effort please visit friendsofrpe.org.
Regardless of what comes next, I’d like to thank the hundreds of writers, activists and artists I have worked with since 2005. Their thoughtful provocative and intelligent analyses of our movements have taught me much and, I hope, enriched your understanding. It’s also been an honor to work with the dozens of dedicated activists who have passed through Urban Habitat’s doors over these nearly eight years. Continue reading

About five years ago, more than anything, I wanted to be a journalist who truly represented the voice of the people. A job at a corporate, mainstream publication never appealed to me. Today, I’m honored to have worked as the web and design editor for Race, Poverty & the Environment, a journal that has mirrored my passion for a myriad of issues in the realm of social and environmental justice. And it’s also great being able to say, I worked for Urban Habitat, “an organization that builds power in low-income communities and communities of color.“
But for 2013, I want to do more. It was Grace Lee Boggs that said, ”How we change the world and how we think about changing the world has to change.”
We will be posting information here about how you can support the national journal for social and environmental justice, Race, Poverty & the Environment (RP&E) and our podcast series Radio RP&E.
