Environmental Justice in Sierra Club: Panel Discussion with Sierra Club Leaders – ONLINE ONLY

Jan 6, 2022

06:00 pm - 07:00 pm

Hear from Sierra Club leaders about how climate and environmental justice and social justice are interrelated. Panelists will discuss Sierra Club’s work related to electricity, transportation, oil pipe lines, land, wildlife, water and how these environmental issues overlap with economic and racial justice.

From accessibility of public lands to health impacts of burning fossil fuels, examples of environmental injustice are deeply woven into each of the issues that we organize around. To examine these connections, many parts of the Sierra Club in Wisconsin are coming together to organize an Environmental Justice Event Series beginning this fall.

We hope that these events can provide an opportunity to explore the inequities rooted within these issues and help shine a light on the critical environmental justice components that exist in our work.
