BIPOC Climate Justice Dialogue

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 9:00am to 5:30pm

The day-long BIPOC Climate Justice Dialogue is an opportunity for Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) climate justice scholars, organizers, and funders to discuss national climate goals and priorities with administration officials in advance of the Biden-Harris Leader’s Climate Summit.

Discussions will feature Administration and federal agency representatives and BIPOC climate justice leaders. Topics to be discussed include BIPOC priorities for the just transition, culturally responsive climate action, White House climate priorities, and integration across federal agencies. The dialogue will also introduce the community-driven U.S. framework for Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE), as recommended in Article 12 of the Paris Agreement.

Advocates, scholars, experts, government officials and community members working to advance just climate policy are invited to participate. Space is limited. The first 150 registrants will receive a free copy of Empowering Climate Action in the United States, the community-developed Action for Climate Empowerment national strategic framework.

This special gathering is collaboratively hosted by the managers of the BIPOC Scholars Project, the Land Peace Foundation, the HBCU Green Fund, and the Coordinating Team for the U.S. ACE National Strategic Planning Framework.
