Event on Friday, October 24th – Fossil Fuels and Institutional Racism: The Intersection, A Talk by Jacqui Patterson

This Friday, October 24th, at 4:30pm, in Weinstein Auditorium, there will be a discussion with Jacqui Patterson, the director of the Climate and Environment Justice Program at the NAACP. (Click here to access the facebook event!) She will be talking about the disproportionate destructive impact that the fossil fuel industry has on people of color. Climate justice and racial justice are inextricably linked, and both are issues that the Smith community needs to address. This talk will discuss the commonalities of the racial justice and climate justice movements, and highlight Smith’s unique and important role in each of them.
