Justice and Transformation: Houston Women on Climate Action


From fires to floods, the consequences of climate change are increasingly evident, and underserved communities often face the most severe impacts. Inspired by Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson’s All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, this virtual panel discussion brought together four Houston women whose work addresses climate justice: Dr. Denae King (TSU), Dr. Cymene Howe (Rice), Amy Catherine Dinn (Lone Star Legal Aid), and Iris Gonzalez (Coalition for Environment, Equity & Resilience (CEER)). Co-sponsored by Rice’s Fondren Library Green Team, Rice’s Center for Environmental Studies, Houston’s Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC), and Rice Environmental Society. This event took place on Zoom. Fondren Library hosted this event as part of its participation in the ALA's Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change grant.
