A Call to Action and Partnership:
Environmental racism is a lived experience for many communities of color, every day, in the U.S. and globally. Pollution, land loss, food and water insecurity, weather extremes connected to climate change, and other environmental problems unfairly and disproportionately impact Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, and other racially minoritized communities. In this 3-part series—co-sponsored with the Grand Challenge to Create Social Responses to a Changing Environment—we explore community practice and partnership, social work education, and policy changes needed at the nexus of environmental and racial justice, in pursuit of a healthy and thriving world for all.
Part 3: Mobilizing Power for Action and Change
Achieving environmental and racial justice requires advocacy, activism and actual policy change at local, state, national and tribal levels. In the U.S., do we have a new window of opportunity to make change happen? How do we get there—urgently, critically and radically? And how do we build consensus among community members, grassroots organizations and legislators? Join us for a conversation with leading advocates, analysts and elected officials and walk away inspired, motivated and with tools for mobilizing power for environmental and racial justice.
