Webinar: Achieving Climate Justice in the Broader Social Justice Movement
July 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
This session is focused on the intersections between climate/environmental/social justice, and how activists can learn to recognize them.
About this event
We know that historically underserved and underrepresented communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change and environmental injustices. What does this mean for activists who are working to make a positive change for their communities? This workshop will focus on understanding how to recognize these intersections, and how to apply these understandings to activist work.
