Feb. 26 at 7 p.m., Climate Change & Faith Speaker Series
“Climate Change is a Social Justice Issue: What it Means for the North Shore”
Dr. Marcos Luna
Please join the UUCGL on Wednesday, February 26, at 7:00 p.m. for the second in our three-part series exploring how our faith calls us to respond to the climate emergency. Salem State University Professor Marcos Luna will present a talk entitled “Climate change is a social justice issue: What it means for the North Shore.” Learn how climate change is not just an environmental catastrophe, it is an ethical and political crisis that falls hardest on those who are least responsible and most vulnerable. Moving toward a just and sustainable future requires that we recognize these disparities and that we bend our efforts at mitigation and adaptation to work in solidarity with the needs and concerns of those communities that have the most to lose. There will be an exhibit on “Mapping Climate Change on the North Shore” in the Skylight room for viewing during the talk. Please also mark your calendars for the next talk in the series on April 1 on climate change impacts on flora and fauna. This series is sponsored by the Green Sanctuary Ministry Team and the Swampscott Conservancy.
