Climate Justice is Social Justice: How to Build Equitable Climate Movements

Are you a social justice warrior also concerned about climate change? A climate advocate who wants to broaden your mission to climate justice? All are welcome for a lively presentation and discussion with Colette Pichon Battle, Executive Director, Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy, on why the climate movement needs more social justice and vice versa.

Colette Pichon Battle is an attorney, advocate, and alliance builder who creates multi-racial regional alliances and served as a lead coordinator for Gulf South Rising, a regional initiative around climate justice in the South. In addition to leading advocacy initiatives that intersect with race, systems of power, and ecology, Colette manages GCCLP's legal services and maintains her legal specialization in disaster and immigration law.

Colette will take questions from the audience and impart her hard-won leadership lessons. 

This event is co-sponsored by the HKS Sustainability, Energy and Environment PIC, Black Student Union, Asian American Pacific Islander Caucus, Asian American Policy Review, and Latinx Caucus.
