Join ARCCA for a Learning Session with Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) and Greenlining Institute for a conversation about how the climate advocacy community can support equitable climate resilience, the ability of communities to adapt and thrive in the face of impacts from climate change, as advocates nationwide are pushed to think beyond climate mitigation.
Emerging from the California advocacy landscape, Amee Raval of APEN and Sona Mohnot of the Greenlining Institute will share:
• Insights, frameworks, and tools that climate advocates nationwide can apply to integrate social equity considerations into advances in climate resiliency policies & programs;
• Specific areas where the climate advocacy community will need further research and data in order to meaningfully advance equitable climate resiliency;
• What developments in California can teach advocates in other geographies about advancing equitable solutions for climate resilient communities;
• …And how and why addressing climate resilience builds into APEN and Greenlining’s Theory of Change and organizing strategies.
This conversation will draw from the recently released resources penned by APEN and Greenlining, “Mapping Resilience: A Blueprint for Thriving in the Face of Climate Disasters” (https://apen4ej.org/map/) and “Making Equity Real in Climate Adaptation and Community Resilience Grant Programs and Policies: A Guidebook”(https://bit.ly/2BTHDpV).
If you’re curious about climate resilience, committed to values of social equity and climate justice (and been wondering how to bring those values into practice), or eager to stay ahead of the policymaking landscape — this webinar is for you!
