Climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color by affecting one’s health and the ability to be resilient through climatic disasters. According to Washington Post, “The United States has a deep history of reckless exploitation of natural resources — forests, topsoil, water, fish and game, minerals, coal, oil, and natural gas — all of which have been extracted for quick economic gain without regard for the ecological and human consequences. The ransacking of the planet’s assets has been perpetrated through colonialism and expropriation at the expense of indigenous people and racial minorities” Healing structural violence is actually in the best interest of all human beings, which is why we welcome individuals from diverse communities to join us for the Climate Change and Systemic Racism webinar.
