Climate Justice – Addressing the Disproportionate Impacts of Climate Change

Climate change – the number one existential threat to humanity and the planet – is often described as an environmental problem with scientific solutions, but it’s more than that. Where does social justice and climate change overlap? How does identity (race, ethnicity, gender, etc.) influence the way a person will be impacted by climate change? And how can we, as concerned community members, fight climate change in a way that is just and equitable for all?

Join Nia Keith, social justice educator and climate activist, as we examine the connection between societal inequities and climate impacts. Then we’ll discuss ways to support the most dynamic climate justice initiatives today, led by youth and People of Color around the world.
