Ethically Green – Climate Justice with Jacqui Patterson of the NAACP

April 8, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join Tufts Divest for a talk with Jacqui Patterson, director of the NAACP’s Climate Justice Initiative!
Global climate change has a disproportionate impact on communities of color in the United States and around the world. The NAACP Climate Justice Initiative was created to educate and mobilize communities to address this human and civil rights issue. Join Jacqui Patterson, Director of the Climate Justice Initiative to discuss climate justice with Tufts Divest, a student campaign to divest the university from the top 200 fossil fuel companies.
When people most often think about climate change, the first things that generally come to mind are melting ice caps and suffering polar bears. However, many fail to make the connection in terms of the direct impact on our own lives, families, and communities. Climate Change is about Katrina, Rita, and Ike devastating communities in Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, and Texas, Climate Change is about vulnerable marginalized and poor who will lose their homes from rising sea levels in the coming few years, be moved by drought and other forms of environmental degradation resulting from climate change. Climate Change is about the vulnerable groups people in Detroit, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere who have died and are dying of exposure to toxins from coal fired power plants. Climate Change is those in West Virginia who breath toxic ash from blasting for mountain top removal.
Prior to joining the NAACP, most recently a global women’s rights consultant, Jacqui Patterson has enjoyed a fulfilling career working in the capacities of researcher, program manager, coordinator, advocate and activist working on women’s rights, violence against women, HIV&AIDS, racial justice, economic justice, and environmental and climate justice. Since 2007 Patterson has served as coordinator for an organization she co-founded, Women of Color United. Previously, Patterson served as a Senior Women’s Rights Policy Analyst for ActionAid where she ensured the integration of a women’s rights lens for the issues of food rights, macroeconomics, and climate change as well as the intersection of violence against women and HIV&AIDS.
