Environmental Justice is Racial Justice – Faith Communities Respond
October 20, 2022 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM EDT
Environmental Justice is the intersection of Creation Justice and Racial Justice. Across our country and our world, communities of color are impacted first and worst by pollution and climate-driven disasters, and among the strongest advocates for change. Learn how your faith community can stand with them. Join a panel of leaders on the front lines of environmental justice featuring:
Dr. Robert Bullard, “The Father of Environmental Justice,” Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy, Texas Southern University, author of 18 books, and co-founder of the HBCU Climate Change Consortium.
Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, Founding Pastor of New Roots AME church in Boston, and nationally-recognized environmental justice advocate.
Rev. Dr. Deborah Conrad, was Pastor of People’s Church in Flint, MI (ABC/Alliance), during the lead poisoning crisis; currently Pastor to Parkview Church, United Church of Christ, Aurora, CO.
