Black Leaders on Environmental Justice and Beyond

Thursday, February 24

1:00PM ET – 2:00PM ET

Black communities throughout the nation have led on environmental justice for years. While at the same time they have also been most impacted by environmental malpractice, pollution, and injustice. The environmental movement has historically excluded the voices of Black leaders, even when policies and practices are directly affecting their livelihoods and communities. Today many are still fighting for a transformation of the environmental movement to prioritize funding and opportunities for justice for Black communities.

 

Join Green 2.0 and Hip Hop Caucus for a discussion with Black leaders in the environmental sector about what needs to happen to move the needle in our mission to achieve justice and equity in the environmental movement.

Speakers include:

  • Opening remarks by Raviya Ismail, Communications Manager, Green 2.0
  • Remarks by Congressman André Carson (IN-07) and Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr, Founder, President and CEO, Hip Hop Caucus
  • LaTresse Snead, Executive Coach and Nonprofit Consultant, Bonsai Leadership Group LLC
  • Karen T. Campblin, Principal Planner, ktcPLAN, LLC and President of Fairfax County NAACP
  • Corina Newsome, Wildlife Conservationist and Community Engagement Manager, Georgia Audubon
  • Moderated by Eddie Love, Program Manager and DEIJ Committee Chair, The Ocean Foundation and Founder of Eddie Love’s Fitness
