Communities of color disproportionately face environmental hazards all around the world, and are taking the blunt of drought, flooding, and devastating weather events caused by climate change. Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and Supertyphoon Haiyan are only harbingers of what’s to come. All of this is already happening while Western leaders continue to debate whether climate change is really happening and express gratitude for warm weather. This cannot be ignored anymore.

DU Black Student Alliance, Divest DU, DU Latino Student Alliance, and DU Native Student Alliance warmly welcome the “Why Climate Justice is a Racial Justice Issue” panelists, including speakers from:

  • IRISE: Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality
  • International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management
  • Showing Up For Racial Justice Denver (SURJ)
  • Woodbine Ecology Center

Join us in Lindsey Auditorium in Sturm Hall on the University of Denver Campus Wednesday April 6th from 6-7pm. RSVP to the Facebook event here!
