  • OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL & CLIMATE JUSTICE IN THE BIDEN ERA: A PANEL DISCUSSION

    Earth Week 2021 should be a time for celebration, but also a time to take stock of the challenges ahead.  By focusing on environmental justice, we hope to broaden the scope of interest and action, and in particular, garner timely support for the ambitious Democratic agenda on climate encapsulated in the infrastructure plan proposed by the Biden Administration.

    Co-hosted by the Progressive Caucus & the Global Black Caucus
