Please join us on Oct 24, 3-4pm ET (12pm PT) to hear Diamond Holloman discuss how community organizing is used as a climate change adaptation strategy by communities of color to meet their needs in post-hurricane landscapes.
Title: Building Post-Hurricane Resilience from the Ground Up: Grassroots Community Organizing as Climate Change Adaptation
Description: Hurricanes Matthew and Florence, two history-making hurricanes, touched down on the east coast in 2016 and 2018. Through an in-depth focus on a case with Black and Indigenous groups in Robeson County North Carolina, the purpose of this presentation is to highlight the importance of community organizing as a climate change adaptation strategy that communities of color have been using to meet their own needs in post-hurricane landscapes. Community adaptation strategies are important to highlight as we aim to address environmental inequities in marginalized communities, and to find solutions to the problems caused by climate change.
