The May meeting will be dedicated to a discussion of the importance of understanding climate justice as we work to address the climate crisis. Presenters Rodrigo Narbona from the Northwest Justice Project and Virginia Camberos, Rogue Valley Regional Director of Unite Oregon will be joined by Unite Oregon Climate Justice Committee Speakers - Anahi Cervantes & Jose Antonio Bucio who will be sharing their stories.
"Vulnerable communities across the globe, including in the United States, have long suffered disproportionately from environmental degradation that results from inconsiderate and irresponsible behaviors. No proposal addressing the climate crisis can be effective unless it also recognizes and redresses years of inequity. We cannot successfully remedy the climate crisis if our efforts maintain or heighten the social injustice that is already evident throughout our society."
