Climate Justice Work in American Cities
How can cities foster a just transition to a clean and carbon-neutral future that recognizes and redresses both the disproportionate burdens and benefits of the fossil fuel economy?
Join us to explore what is currently being done – and pathways to do more – in prioritizing climate action that advances the health and well-being of communities of color, low-income communities, and other historically marginalized communities.
