Climate justice workshops in June!

May 27, 2014

Discussing climate justice at last year's EJ Agenda Retreat

Remember Hurricane Sandy? Climate change causes the weather to become less predictable, leading to more extreme storms in the northeast, while worsening droughts elsewhere. In addition to the weather, it affects everything from health to food, which tend to hit communities of color and low-income communities the hardest.

This June is Climate Justice Month at ACE. People are rising up and fighting this threat globally. Locally, what can we do together and how can we ensure that actions taken by the city and state are just and improve people's lives?

Join us for a series of workshops and conversations about climate change, how it affects environmental justice communities and how you can become involved in efforts to protect our neighborhoods.

June 11: Connecting our work to climate justice
June 18: The climate justice movement
June 25: Our role in the climate justice movement
5:30 p.m. Dinner
6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Workshop
