Passage of the IRA legislation re-ignited a fierce debate within the climate and environment movements. Many environmental organizations rushed to celebrate and embrace the act while other critical voices, primarily Black, Brown, and Indigenous leaders, sounded alarms that the fossil fuel provisions would sacrifice frontline communities. This session will use the IRA as a critical case study to discuss the importance of racial equity at the federal level and on boards and senior leadership of environmental, climate and conservation organizations.
