September Monthly Actions & Meeting W/ Tina Johnson, National Black Environmental Justice Network

Average Rating:
Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. September's monthly meeting will took place on September 12th and featured Tina Johnson, National Black Environmental Justice Network director. 

0a4e36edb2e7d4cea22c9033ee6bee55-huge-tiAs the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we see disproportionate numbers of Black people becoming infected and dying from the disease. Leaders in the environmental justice community know this disparity all too well, and in June the National Black Environmental Justice Network was relaunched to help communities of color address the inequities that place them in harm's way. Tina Johnson, director of NBEJN, joins us to talk about those disparities and how the network is fighting for environmental justice.
