As climate change and extreme weather become ever present, people are calling attention to the disproportionate effects of climate instability and environmental under-representation on Black and Brown communities. Gustavo Angeles will discuss the importance of environmental justice, what it means and how to incorporate right thinking into your action.
Gustavo Angeles, Environmental Justice Program Coordinator, is working on expanding The Sierra Club, Virginia Chapter’s focus on environmental justice by working with The Sierra Club local groups, staff and volunteers to integrate EJ principles into to existing campaigns and by providing support to community members who reach out to the Sierra Club seeking help with issues related to environmental justice.
Since 1892, The Sierra Club has been the most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.
