The Intersection of Climate and Equity

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Our Climate Re:Action series kicks off on Feb. 23 with a virtual gathering where you’ll hear from emerging climate justice leaders who are doing exciting work right here in Minneapolis. Learn what they are doing to make a tangible difference on fossil-fuel emissions, how local actions can make a global impact, and the critical importance of work led by the diverse communities that are already disproportionately affected by climate change.

Hear from climate justice leaders who are leveraging support from the Minneapolis Climate Action and Racial Equity Fund, which the Minneapolis Foundation holds in partnership with the City of Minneapolis and the McKnight Foundation. Our featured speakers include Neely Snyder, Executive Director, and Jessika Greendeer, Seed Keeper & Farm Manager of Dream of Wild Health, Paul Schroeder, CEO of HOURCAR, Julia Nerbonne, Executive Director of Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light, and Kristel Porter, Founder and Executive Director of Minnesota Renewable Now.
