iCAR Phase VII: Climate Justice, Social Networks and Equitable Resilience

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Florida communities are already experiencing the effects of climate change, from sunny-day flooding to more powerful and unpredictable hurricanes. And experts predict people from diverse and vulnerable neighborhoods will continue to be disproportionately impacted. Dr. Bullard, the keynote speaker for the annual iCAR workshop will be delivering a virtual presentation on Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. titled “Confluences of Environmental and Climate Justice: Bringing Diverse Partners Together for Community Resilience.” Bullard, who is often referred to as the father of environmental justice, is currently the distinguished professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University. Bullard’s presentation is an important step forward in involving members of the south St. Petersburg community in creating a plan to combat the effects of climate change, which has been a priority for iCAR since its inception.
