Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR)
Wednesday, July 28 * 1:30-2:30 pm EST
Across the world, climate change is displacing millions of people from their homes, forcing many from the Global South to seek refuge in the United States and other countries. Meanwhile, in the United States, hurricanes, heat waves, fires, and other climate change-fueled disasters present immigrants with significant hazards where they live and work.
How do we prevent people displaced by climate change from falling through the cracks? How do we support immigrant communities who are facing the worsening effects of climate change?
We need policy that meets the realities of both immigrant and climate justice. Join Unbound, GCIR, Four Freedoms Fund and leaders from the field for a conversation on equitable approaches to dealing with the fallout when migration and climate change interact.
