Climate Justice Forum hosted by CNI and the Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA

May 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The CNI Climate Justice Forum will take place Tuesday, May 8th from 5-8pm at the UCLA Carnesale Commons Palisades Room.

Description:

The Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA was formed to promote and co-create a space for marginalized identities to unpack, discuss, and organize for diversity and inclusivity within the mainstream environmentalism movement.

By hosting a Climate Justice Forum, the Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA hopes to accomplish three things:
1. Raise awareness about the contributions that people of color have made to the environmental sustainability movement,
2. Reframe the definition and values of mainstream environmentalism to be more inclusive of all underrepresented communities, and
3. Stimulate critical dialogue about environmental racism and justice issues at UCLA and beyond.
The Climate Justice Forum is organized under the UC Carbon Neutrality Initiative and will feature speakers across the Los Angeles community. Dinner will be provided. This event is open to the UCLA community and general public.
