Resilience at the Crossroads of Race and Climate Justice
Jul 5, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Resilience at the Crossroads of Race & Climate Justice
Sunday, July 5th 3-6 PM
Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center
Come discuss the state and structural violence which occurs because of environmental racism and how building an intersectional movement led by frontline communities is necessary
It is the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, with numerous harmful and unjust results that occur when government doesn’t resource or support climate vulnerable communities, especially working class black and brown communities. Utilizing art, stories, and dance, we will begin to dissect the many ways people of color can begin to heal from the trauma when facing environmental racism and continue to build resiliency.
