This panel will interrogate how we can act and reflect upon the world in a manner that centers Black Femme liberation. Through conversations about environmental liberation, community development without displacement, a just economic transition, and a toxic-free, zero-waste, circular economy - panelists will reveal what a world that centers climate justice and environmental liberation looks like.
