“We have twelve years!” The Green New Deal has spurred debate on the need for bold actions that make big differences. Carbon pricing is being debated. 156 Million Americans have pledged to keep the Paris Climate Agreement Commitments. Jack Ma says the U.S. wasted $14 trillion in wars rather than infrastructure among other investments. Communities of color wonder why they often pay the costs first, and deepest, but rarely get to voice their concerns.
How can we as UUs be in solidarity and fellowship? Learn how climate change is an economic justice issue with intersectional dimensions of race, ethnicity and class running throughout. Let us talk about how disproportionately at risk and impacted communities tend to be coastal communities, the poor, people of color and first nations communities.
When: Sunday, Sept. 15, 11:15 AM through Tuesday, Sept. 17, 4:00 PM
Where: Washington, DC
