*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
Across the world, climate change is displacing millions of people from their homes, forcing many from the Global South to seek refuge in the United States and other countries. Meanwhile in the United States, hurricanes, heat waves, fires, and other climate change-fueled disasters present immigrants with significant hazards where they live and work. We need policy that meets the realities of both immigrant and climate justice.
Join Unbound, GCIR, Four Freedoms Fund and leaders from the field for a conversation on equitable approaches to dealing with the fallout when migration and climate change interact.
- How do we prevent people displaced by climate change from falling through the cracks?
- How do we support immigrant communities who are facing the worsening effects of climate change?
Johanna Chao Kreilick, President, Union of Concerned Scientists
Ama Francis, Climate Displacement Project Strategist, International Refugee Assistance Project
Ahmed Gaya, Project Director, Climate and Migrant Justice Collaborative
- Saket Soni, Executive Director, Resilience Force
