Building Equity, Justice and Climate Resilience Together
Join inspiring community leaders in group conversations as we learn how to strengthen resilience with under-resourced communities.
Tuesday June 22
7:00 – 8:30 pm EDT
Under-resourced communities experience the greatest impacts when a crisis occurs. The COVID pandemic brought much of this to light. Food insecurity, risk of eviction, reduced access to health care, transportation challenges, and financial insecurity have all been exacerbated since the pandemic began and will become more so as the climate crisis deepens.
What solutions can be implemented to address these problems simultaneously? What can we all learn from underserved communities about how they organize during a crisis? How can we scale these solutions more quickly so that communities are better prepared and resilient?
Join us in learning with community leaders and with one another, through large and small group conversations, about the opportunities we have for strengthening community resilience.
Our community leaders include:
- Grace Rivera Oven
The UpCounty HUB, Montgomery County, Maryland
- Roxane Prettyman and Inez Robb
First Mount Calvary Baptist Church, Baltimore, Maryland
The church and its community are Baltimore’s first “Resilience Hub”
- Tasnuva Khan
Muslim Voices Coalition
