Text: Rooted in Race and Class: Intersections in Climate Stories. Featuring Rickey Ciapha Dennis Jr., Aaron Sanchez-Guerra, Carly Berlin, and Fabio Zuker. April 20, 2021. 2:00 PM EDT. Environment (Re)Defined. 2021 Pulitzer Center Conference.

Climate change has increasingly disrupted life across the globe with hurricanes, floods, and, as Pulitzer Center grantees have recently reported, disease. As we learn more about the science behind these extreme weather events and the destruction of land, it becomes clear that Black, brown, and Indigenous communities are hugely affected by environmental issues. In this panel, Pulitzer Center grantees will explore how stories deeply rooted in race and class issues are also environment stories.

This session is part of the 2021 Pulitzer Center Conference Environment (Re)Defined. A full list of the conference events can be found here. To sign up for this panel individually, click here.
