Just & Sustainable Economy Podcast

Mar 7 2022 • 1 hr 4 mins

We know the impacts of the climate crisis largely fall on those who contribute the least to it: Black, Brown and Indigenous communities. We also know we need to reach net zero carbon emissions (carbon neutral), fast. The time is now for courageous business leadership to help create a future that serves people (especially those most vulnerable) and the planet.

This week on the Just & Sustainable Economy podcast, we have two conversations on these very issues that will identify tangible actions on the policy, advocacy, and mitigation fronts, both businesses and individuals can do, to address the devastating impacts of climate change on our communities and biosphere by putting people and equity at the center.

Today, is our first conversation in the series, Climate & Racial Justice: The Nexus of the NEXT Economy with Ibrahim Al-Husseini (FullCycle), Xiuhtezcatl Martinez (Artist & Climate Organizer), and Donnel Baird (BlocPower) moderated by Seungah Jeong (MPOWERD and ASBN’s Board Co-Chair).
