Why Environmental Justice Matters

October 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Sunday, October 8, 2017, Environmental Stewardship Greensboro and Temple Emanuel’s Social Action Committee will hold a forum about what congregations can do together on environmental, climate, and justice issues.

Nakisa Glover, a community organizer working with N.C. Interfaith Power and Light, will lead a discussion that explores what Environmental Justice means for us as individuals, for our local Greensboro community, and the wider world where some people face devastating impacts from toxic air, unsafe water, unfair utility costs, flooding and drought.  Climate change will unfairly impact those in vulnerable neighborhoods and communities.

As religious communities, we can motivate action and offer practical guidelines for daily living that enhance, rather than diminish the environment, and seek justice joyfully with our partners in faith.
