Climate Effects on Communities of Color
The racism embedded in U.S. society and the associated historical and present-day injustices have subjected people of color to far greater environmental health hazards. It is not surprising that climate change, the result of a legacy of extraction, colonialism, and slavery, disproportionately impacts communities of color, poor people, and indigenous people. Further, racial inequality has left those most at risk from climate change with the fewest resources to cope. Climate action is, therefore, intimately tied to racial justice. This webinar will examine the disparate impacts of climate on communities of color in the United States.

Speakers include:
- Lisa Benjamin – Assistant Professor of Law, Lewis & Clark Law School
- Melissa Bryan – Barry University School of Law, Class of 2021; President of Barry Law Chapter, Federal Bar Association
