REVEALING RELATIONSHIPS: CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM
NOVEMBER 14, 2020

Climate Crisis realities, Racism, and Disaster collide in many places around the globe. Climate refugees are on the move from Central America north. Indigenous peoples living in the Pacific Islands are forced to flee their homes in the face of sea level rise. Hurricanes moving seasonally through Haiti, Puerto Rico and the southern U.S. are not more frequent, but much more severe than in the past. Who is hurt? How do we respond? What factors tell the story?

DISASTER CAN BE LOCAL, BUT MUCH OF OUR PREPARATION AND MITIGATION EFFORTS REQUIRE A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE. THIS WEBINAR BEGINS TO PUT ALL THE PIECES TOGETHER. REGISTRATION OPENS OCTOBER 20, 2020.
