Justice and Transformation: Houston Women on Climate Action

From fires to floods, the consequences of climate change are increasingly evident, and underserved communities often face the most severe impacts. Inspired by Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson’s All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, this virtual panel discussion will bring together four Houston women whose work addresses climate justice:

  • Dr. Denae King (TSU)
  • Dr. Cymene Howe (Rice)
  • Amy Catherine Dinn (Lone Star Legal Aid)
  • Iris Gonzalez (Coalition for Environment, Equity & Resilience (CEER).

Join us on October 28, 2020 for a discussion about gender, climate change, and environmental justice. Co-sponsored by Rice’s Fondren Library Green Team, Rice’s Center for Environmental Studies, and Houston’s Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC). Fondren Library is hosting this event as part of its participation in the ALA’s Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change grant.
