UCC Webinar: The Green New Deal and Reparations
August 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
When it comes to justice-oriented policy proposals that seek to fundamentally transform our society, the Green New Deal and reparations currently rise to the top. Yet, often they are discussed separately, despite clear and compelling connections.
The Green New Deal Resolution proposed in Congress sought “to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression.” At the same time, the demand for reparations compels our society to address the historic injustices of systemic racism, including environmental racism.
To explore such connections and how faith communities can work to advance just policies, this webinar schedule for August 5, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. (Central Time) will feature three panelists: Congresswoman Barbara Lee, 350.org’s North America Director Tamara Toles O’Laughlin, and the UCC’s Economic Justice Minister Sekinah Hamlin.
