Perspectives on the Future of Climate and Environmental Justice on the US Gulf Coast
Jun 24, 2021
Webinar hosted by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine
Marginalized communities along the Gulf coast are burdened by chronic stressors such as systemic or institutional racism, poverty, environmental degradation, and health disparities. Climate change threatens to exacerbate the severity of these impacts as disadvantaged and underserved communities fall further behind in their ability to prepare for, respond to, or recover from disasters.
The Gulf Research Program invites you to Perspectives on the Future of Climate and Environmental Justice on the U.S. Gulf Coast on June 24, 2021 from 10-11am ET. Members of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council will discuss critical steps that are being taken or that need to occur to advance climate and environmental justice for all those who call the Gulf of Mexico region home. The conversation will feature Dr. Robert D. Bullard, Dr. Beverly L. Wright and Ms. Catherine Coleman Flowers and will be moderated by New Orleans Times-Picayune/ New Orleans Advocate journalist, Halle Parker. Read more
