Event description

Description

Join us for a historic discussion between Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and activist and organizer, Rev. Mariama White-Hammond about the Green New Deal.


The ecological and economic justice challenges of our time require all of us to work for an equitable, healthy and livable planet for all. Responding to our environmental crisis must be done in a way that bridges Boston's racial divide. A just and sustainable transition must follow the leadership of women of color who have helped move forward many critical issues in our current political environment. Women of color leading the way!



We will discuss the challenges of working for a just transition that includes how we build an equitable economy that lifts people out of poverty and also lives within the ecological boundaries of the earth.
