A generation ago, Black, Brown, and low-income communities alerted the world to environmental racism: more toxins, fewer jobs, more pollution, and less voice in Black and Brown communities. Today, we’re seeing these same disasters multiplied by climate crisis. On Wednesday, September 18, join POWER’s Climate Justice and Jobs team in looking at Climate Crisis through an anti-racist lens. Join this evening of shared learning, imagining and community building as we envision the possibility of an economy that puts people and the planet first.
