Racial Justice is Climate Justice: Learning Series

October 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

Climate Justice is Racial Justice: Learning Series explores the ways racial inequities intersect with the threats of climate change. These fights are deeply interconnected, and the way to build a healthy, resilient future is to learn, understand, and support one another in the fight against the systems of oppression that we’ve all been enmeshed in.
Each week for four weeks, a 350 Seattle team will host a guest speaker who will draw connections between racial justice issues and the work we do here at 350 Seattle. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions, and be offered a clear way to learn more and support each issue. You can participate for individual webinars or the whole series.
