How do we build a movement to challenge the immensity of the climate crisis? Increasingly, the world is seeing climate change as not an issue merely of environmental concern - but a cross-cutting crisis that links together economic, security, health, labor, social justice, and human rights concerns. This event brings together diverse leaders to discuss how we build a powerful movement to solve the climate crisis, and how climate justice is a framework to build a sustainable and just future.
Speakers include Bill McKibben (350.org), Gopal Dayaneni (Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project), Reverend Sally Bingham (Interfaith Power & Light), Katy Roemer (California Nurses Association) and Antonia Juhasz (Author of The Tyranny of Oil and Black Tide, Fellow of the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley)
