A Just Recovery For All: Addressing Environmental Racism
EPISODE 5: Resiliency in Times of Change webinar series June 10, 2020
Deep social, environmental and economic transformation is vital as we build back from the pandemic. Join our team as we dive into the movement for a Just Recovery — a more hopeful vision for a way to build back better by giving priority to health and wellbeing, racial justice, resilient communities, ecosystem protection and economic equality. We also dig right into the details of why, as a science-based organization, we need to be talking about political and social justice issues.

Racism is killing the planet, by Hop Hopkins of Sierra Club USA (Note: This is the piece from which Tim quoted: “You can’t have climate change without sacrifice zones, and you can’t have sacrifice zones without disposable people, and you can’t have disposable people without racism.”)
