Leaders from U.S. Territories on Environmental Justice and Community Resilience


Tuesday, May 30


4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET

A long and living history of colonialism in the U.S. territories has created circumstances where those most impacted by climate change and natural disasters have the least say in decision-making about their livelihoods and futures. Destructive federal policies have fractured communities from their rightful access to the resources necessary to address these challenges, but movements to turn this tide have been creating meaningful change. 


Leaders of color in these places are working to create a future that ensures programs and policies are implemented that target climate change and address racial/ethnic, economic, and environmental justice. Join Green 2.0 for a conversation about how these leaders are supporting their communities and how the federal government, foundations, and non-profit organizations can work more effectively with these leaders and communities.


and more speakers!

Contact Juliana Ojeda, Green 2.0 Program Associate, at for questions about the event.
