Part 2: The Importance of Intersectionality in Environmentalism – BIPOC
October 19, 2022 from 12:45 – 3 pm
People of color have long been excluded from environmental policy and conservation—creating blind spots that perpetuate inequality. We hope to create space for intersectionality and racial disparities among Black and racialized communities to discuss on-going effects and impacts of colonization and environmental racism in today’s communities.
Collectively we need to create space for the fight for racial equity alongside the fight against biodiversity loss. In our community there are powerful advocates for social and environmental justice and these leaders will share how their work is shifting us towards a more just and sustainable future.
