In our 25th anniversary as an organization, Building Bridges will confront climate justice and its wide scope of intersections. The conference, titled “Climate Justice: Unearthing the Climate Crisis as an Issue of Human Suffering” will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2020 beginning at 9:00 AM in Christ Chapel. The goal of the conference is to understand how climate change is rooted in systems of oppression that reinforce injustice on a global scale. We intend to illuminate perspectives that are under-acknowledged in a climate debate that tends to prioritize profit over justice.
The conference offers a wide variety of opportunities for engagement including keynote lectures, a workshop series, and an interactive action piece. We invite you to join us as we reorient the climate conversation to emphasize ways that injustice pervades climate change. Our hope is that we leave the conference feeling inspired and equipped to holistically engage in climate activism and dismantle systems that legitimize discrimination.
