Joe and Jo College don’t generally think about justice in their everyday lives. But they—and other Americans—are enacting it (or not) all the time. This presentation explores the justice implications of just living in America, including individual and institutional assumptions about environmental justice. It also goes beyond the common sense of American culture to introduce some uncommon sense that might help us find practical steps to live harmoniously with nature and nature’s human communities.
