Climate change and its effects are no longer a looming crisis; they are our reality. From Hurricanes Katrina and Maria to the recent winter storms in the South, Black communities are often hit the hardest by these disasters and, due to both a failure of infrastructure and leadership, we are left with little to no support to recover and rebuild. Our communities deserve better!
On April 15th at 7pm EST, we’re hosting a very special live conversation exploring the impacts of climate change on our communities, why climate justice is a racial justice issue, and what the Biden Administration must do to ensure that our communities do not continue to be hit first and worst by climate catastrophes. Join our brilliant panelists - Executive Director of Gulf Coast Center for Law & Member of The Movement for Black Lives Policy Table Leadership Team, Colette Pichon Battle, Esq; Co-Director of Soul Fire Farms, Lean Penniman; The Movement for Black Lives’ Red, Black & Green New Deal National Organizing Lead, Valencia Gunder; and our Principal, Alicia Garza.
