Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Imagining a Healthy, Equitable, & Sustainable Planet

April 29, 2021

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The current global climate crisis has no geographical boundaries, but the consequences of historic racial prejudices and structural racism have created systemic social and economic inequities in which communities of color feel the brunt and find it challenging to escape climate change. This presentation focuses on the impact and correlations of climate change, social inequity, and racial injustice. Local experts will lead conversations about each of these issues and offer positive perspectives for action toward the creation of a healthy, equitable, and sustainable planet.

This workshop will be hosted by Hermina Glass-Hill, GIPL, Kevin Ionno, the Climate Reality Project of Coastal Georgia, UUC Savannah Anti-Racism Committee, and UUC Savannah Green Team. Panelists include Dr. Kim Cobb, Georgia Institute of Technology,  Rev. Zack Lyde, Principled Pastors of the Poor, and Helen R. Ladson, a Brunswick-based cultural activist.
