The event will take place in Catawba’s Center for the Environment, Room 302 on February 1st at 6:30 pm. Refreshments begin at 6 pm. Virtual attendance is available.

Many have heard about the problems climate change creates for communities far and wide. Climate change also has a tremendous impact that disproportionately affects our communities of color and those economically disenfranchised. Climate change is also a justice issue – justice of equality, equity, and ethics.

Panelists include:

  • Gemale A. Black, President of Salisbury-Rowan NAACP
  • Edgar Miller, Yadkin Riverkeeper
  • Jennifer Roberts, 58th Mayor of Charlotte
