Environmental Racial Justice in the Age of Climate Change and Pandemic
Please save the date of Aug. 6 at 6:30 pm for a Zoom program with Dr. Ryan Emanuel of North Carolina State University. The topic is environmental justice in the age of climate change and pandemic: who is at risk, what are the risks, and what can individuals of faith do to minimize the impacts of climate change to communities most at risk. Originally scheduled for March 24, it has been rescheduled by cosponsors Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle, Orange Chatham Interfaith Care for Creation, and Campaign Nonviolence NC.
Ryan Emanuel, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at NC State’s College of Natural Resources and a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. Ryan has studied climate change impact in Indigenous communities and has worked with communities most at risk from the effects of climate change. Dr. Emanuel offers a unique and engaging perspective on climate change and disproportionately impacted communities.
