EPA Office of Environmental Justice: REDLINING AND THE CLIMATE CRISIS

Opportunity

Date and Time:

Tuesday, April 6, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

About this Event

Understanding structural racism and the climate crisis is key to shaping urban governance and the future of America’s cities. The co-authors of a recent study on the correlation of redlined areas and the location of urban heat islands will discuss their participatory research on the spatial distribution of climate impacts, involving communities in measuring heat in cities. Their interdisciplinary approach offers a compelling perspective on how scientists and residents seek to address disproportionate vulnerability emerging from climate change.

Featured Speakers:

  • Dr. Jeremy Hoffman, Science Museum of Virginia
  • Dr. Vivek Shandas, Portland State University

Moderated by Charles Lee, Senior Policy Advisor for Environmental Justice, EPA
