Climate change is the number one existential threat to humanity and the planet, but some communities are more vulnerable than others. Where does social justice and climate change overlap? How does identity (race, gender, age, 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, Mass Audubon’s Climate Change Education Manager, in an interactive lecture on climate justice. Join fellow community members as we make space for questions, conversations, and, most importantly, climate action.
