Rising sea levels … deadly tornados and hurricanes … devastating wildfires—the signs of accelerating environmental change are all around us, spurring citizen activism and governmental mobilization around the globe. Yet environmental challenges have too often been addressed through policies that victimize the most vulnerable communities—the poor, the marginalized, and people of color.

Unless we tackle today’s crisis through the lens of environmental justice, no truly sustainable solutions are possible.

Join Rivertowns Episcopal Parishes Action on Inclusion and Race (REPAIR) on Zoom when a remarkable panel of experts and activists help us consider what Environmental Justice means, what we must do, how we can support it in our own communities.

Panel includes:
Anjalie Sauthoff, environmental health scientist working in Westchester County government to create communication tools on the impacts of climate change here.
Paul Presendieu, outreach manager for Sustainable Westchester and global ambassador for the UN Foundation’s sustainable development goal on climate action.
Delia M Farquharson, former Mount Vernon city council member, working to improve environmental justice
Rev. Dr. Gregory Simpson, organic chemist and pastor, co-founder of Hudson Valley Environmental Justice.
