Our show on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 12:00-1:00 PM, will focus on the upcoming Climate Action Conference being held March 10-11th at New York University. The conference is co-sponsored by Hip Hop Caucus, Justice Action Mobilization Network, New York City Environmental Justice Alliance and People’s Climate Music.
This conference is designed to be interdisciplinary, diverse and inclusive and seeks to mobilize across disciplines and practices. Our show will examine the importance of this conference to communities of color and all Americans.
Our special guests include Joel Segal of the Justice Action Network, Rev. Rodney Sadler, Vice-Chair of the Social Action Network and Karen Monahan, social justice and environmental justice activist.
One of President Obama’s most significant accomplishments was to negotiate and execute the Paris Climate Accord. The new Trump Administration has shown no prioritization of climate change and indeed has confirmed environmental regulation opponent Scott Pruitt as Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency. The Administration has also supported the Dakota Access Pipeline and the destruction of the Lakota’s Water Protector’s camps. And 2016 set a new record for global warming and the melting of the polar ice caps. Communities of color find themselves on the front lines of flooding and natural disasters due to Climate Change.
During the show, we will discuss the criticality of this conference at this time. Why should everyone care about Climate Change? What are the needed actions for our times? How can you become involved in taking action?
