A discussion of the intersection of climate justice and racial justice and using divestment as a tool to address environmental racism.

The event aims to open up the dialogue on how students, faculty, alumni, and concerned community members, can engage with the advocacy work happening at a local and national level to address the intersecting challenges of climate change and racial injustice. Speakers will address divestment, environmental racism and racial injustice, and environmental challenges that affect us at macro and micro levels. This collaborative event is showcasing how these broad topics are intrinsically connected.

This event will also highlight current efforts underway at UWaterloo to attempt to address these challenges, as well as a possible vote on divestment and the adoption of a climate neutral investment policy by the University of Waterloo Board of Governors this spring.

A Zoom link to the event will be sent out in the days preceeding the event.
