Oppressive Heat: Climate Change and Civil Rights
While solar panels and electric cars are typically associated with upper-class white folk, the transition to clean energy is also a civil rights issue. Communities of color often live closest to factories and refineries that spew toxic pollution.

Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley (a longtime IPL national board member) works with preachers and activists across the country advocating for a cleaner and more inclusive economy. Join Climate One for a conversation about the climate and civil rights movements.
