2021 Henry and Bryna David Lecture

Méndez delivers talk on undocumented migrants and wildfires

Michael Méndez, assistant professor of urban planning and public policy, the first Latinx scholar to deliver the National Academies’ Henry and Bryna David Lecture, spoke about how disasters amplify existing inequalities, and how to lessen the resulting harms, in particular for the most stigmatized populations, such as undocumented Latino/a and Indigenous migrants.
