Although no one is immune from climate change, the burden of its effects is not carried equally between races, genders, economic statuses or age groups. This symposium features a series of virtual speakers and an in-person discussion featuring researchers and advocates from a variety of backgrounds. They will explore both climate injustice as well as the path forward to reach climate justice. The focal points of the event are extreme weather events and the climate crisis.
This event is free to attend - both in person and/or virtually. Please register through Eventbrite using the "Register" link above.
