Racism, Discrimination and Bias are part of the fabric of the founding and development of the South Bay. Join us as we explore the origins and current impacts of racism in the South Bay over the course of a series and what can be done to confront it now.
Communities of color are more likely to experience health, food and educational inequities from land use decisions and environmental pollution.
Climate Educator Brittany Jefferson will explore the discrimination that led to racial inequities in the South Bay and how climate education is critical to environmental justice.
Climate Activist Sim Bilal will discuss growing up with climate anxiety, and his motivation to engage in climate activism to address health inequities stemming from pollution in his community.
Community Organizer and Master Gardener Tim Watkins will discuss inequities for communities of color when it comes to health education including the impact of food deserts and lack of community gardens.
A panel discussion will follow the presentations.
