Covid’s Lessons for Climate and Inequality: from Sacrifice Zones to Justice

You can watch this event on the Climate Group's Facebook Watch page.

The coronavirus crisis carries essential lessons for us all as we confront the climate emergency. Among the most critical are lessons about America’s profound inequality and its disastrous consequences for the physical and economic well-being of communities of color as well as the overall health of our society.

Experts joining to discuss the necessary transformations ahead include:

  • Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance
  • Cheryl Holder, President, Florida State Medical Association; Co-chair, Florida Clinicians for Climate Action
  • Brentin Mock, Writer and Editor, CityLab
  • Jacqueline Patterson, Director of the NAACP Climate and Environmental Justice Program

The event will begin with two short readings by the celebrated poet Ross Gay. Moderated by Miranda Massie, Director of the Climate Museum.

This is a crossover event: the first in the discussion series Lessons from Covid for Climate, and the second in the discussion series Climate and Inequality (Episode 1: Black Lives and the Climate Crisis).
