Why Environmentalists Must Embrace Social Justice
Monica Embrey, Climate and Energy Campaigner, Greenpeace USA
Join us to hear Monica Embrey, Climate and Energy Campaigner with Greenpeace USA based in Charlotte, speak about the role of intersectional organizing in the environmental movement. Why should environmentalists stand in solidarity with racial, gender, labor and immigrants rights advocates? We’ll discuss what’s to gain by taking action and what we could lose if we don’t. Monica has worked on environmental justice campaigns across the country and will bring her personal experiences, in addition to academic research for this lively conversation. She has a degree in Environmental Justice Studies: Race, Class, Gender and the Environment from Pomona College.
The evening begins with pizza at 6:30 and the program begins at 7 p.m. Free and open to the public. You do not have to be a member of Sierra Club to attend.
