UUSS and Sacramento Area Congregations Together are jointly sponsoring this event.

Throughout the history of our country communities of color, tribal nations and immigrant communities have disproportionately experienced environmental burdens and related health problems. This is true in the Sacramento region.

We will spend the afternoon exploring the causes of this inequity including racialized historical legacies and structural and institutional racism; and their effects on environmental justice community health, transportation, pollution burden, climate change impacts, food access and housing. We will also explore ways to address the conditions created by this inequity.

Forum Speakers:
— Jonathan London, Professor of Human Ecology and Director of University of California Davis Center for Regional Change
— Katie Valenzuela, Staff to the California Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies
— Kirin Kumar, WALK Sacramento, a non-profit organization advocating walkable communities that promote health and economic growth
