In collaboration with Virginia Camberos, Regional Director of Rogue Valley Unite Oregon. Presentation by Rodrigo Narbona from the Northwest Justice Project with Anahi Cervantes & Jose Antonio Bucio, Unite Oregon Climate Justice Committee members sharing their stories. Erika Bucio will translate for the Spanish-speaking panelists.
Since time immemorial, vulnerable communities across the globe, including in the United States, have suffered disproportionately from the insults resulting from the environmental degradation that inconsiderate and irresponsible behaviors impose on society. It has become increasingly obvious that no proposal designed to address the climate crisis can be effective unless it also incorporates recognition and redress to the years of inequity that have existed. We cannot successfully remedy the climate crisis if our efforts maintain or heighten the social injustice that is already evident throughout our society.
The May SOCAN General Meeting will be dedicated to a discussion of the importance of understanding climate justice as we work to address the climate crisis.
There is no charge for joining the ZOOM meeting, but registration is required.
