Please join the New York Environmental Funders Network for a Fireside Chat with our network co-chair Valerie Boucard and Lauren Ressler of the Climate Justice Alliance about innovative frontline-led climate solutions ripe for investment and the false solutions that hinder our ability to make a just transition real on the ground. As always, we will discuss issues from an equity perspective.

What will you learn?

  • Learn more about frontline-led climate solutions, where resources are needed and their potential impact. 
  • Lift up some of the false solutions to rapid decarbonization with the potential to increase harm in already overburdened communities. 
  • Center racial equity in our collective quest for climate and environmental solution with the following questions: 
    • How do we think critically about advancing climate solutions, while also protecting and building power for communities? 
    • What is the potential impact of innovation without guardrails (particularly on communities of color)? 
    • Who is excluded or suffers the unintended costs of technological innovations? Who benefits?  
    • What and how do we learn from New York and other places that prioritize equity in their environmental regulations and decarbonization goals?
