Panelists and attendees will discuss challenges and opportunities for alignment between philanthropy and grassroots environmental justice organizations in the context of the multi-layered crises of COVID-19, economic distress, and racial injustice in communities already disproportionately polluted and under-resourced. This report focused on the Midwest and Gulf South regions.

Speakers include:

  • Ana Baptista,  Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School
  • Matthew Kennedy, Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy
  • Antonio Lopez, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization
  • Andrew Rosenberg, BEA Steering Committee member and Union of Concerned Scientists
This webinar is specifically for those working in philanthropy. A second webinar on August 6 will be conducted for a wider audience.
