Everyone has a stake in solving our climate crisis—but no one more so than members of economically oppressed and politically marginalized communities who are living on the front lines. We have a moral imperative to take immediate and decisive action to address climate change, and these communities must have a voice in the choices we make. This panel will discuss the environmental and climate justice movement—what advocates are fighting for, why those objectives matter to everyone, and how all of us can come together to achieve comprehensive climate action.
