Upholding the Beloved Community: Advancing A Just and Equitable Transition to a Low Carbon World

Jacqui Patterson, Director of Environmental and Climate Justice for the NAACP, will discuss the principles, process, practices and policies that advance a transition in centers on conservation and preservation of the environment while uplifting human and civil rights. The impacts of environmental and climate injustice are far reaching, including compromising health, economic wellbeing, and educational outcomes, as well as displacement, cultural erosion, criminalization, and political disenfranchisement particularly for people of color. We must have a radical transformation and transition to regenerative, interdependent, cooperative systems that uplift all rights for all people while preserving the environment upon which we all rely for our existence.
