The Green New Deal & Reparations
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 will feature three panelists: California Congresswoman Barbara Lee; 350.org’s North America Director Tamara Toles O'Laughlin; and the United Church of Christ’s Economic Justice Minister Sekinah Hamlin.
