February Forum, Climate Justice: Down with Carbon Emissions — Up with Community Equity!


2022_02_Forum



In our region, the climate crisis will demand substantial community engagement and investments in resilient infrastructure. Our LWVSKC City Climate Action Committee is working to increase democratic engagement of residents in King County to support our cities in meeting their climate action goals. Cities must reduce carbon emissions dramatically to meet the targets of 50% reduction by 2030 and 80% by 2050. Through equitable education and engagement, residents can help cities meet their climate goals.

A framework of climate justice and equitable access to resources and improvements is key to our success. Systemic inequities leave frontline communities with limited opportunities for input and access to fewer resources. With the urgency of the climate crisis, community resilience requires that we promote equity for all, especially the most vulnerable.
  • What is climate justice and how can we implement it in our engagement with cities?

  • What does a fair and transparent process for delivering evidence-based results for all look like?

  • How might we uplift climate actions that promote equity, eliminate barriers, reduce harm?

  • How might LWV members interact with local agencies and programs to support pro-equity actions?

  • What actions can we take to support climate equity and build community resilience?
A diverse panel of local experts will present their perspectives and answer compelling questions to guide our work on climate in our region.  Our panel will be moderated by:

Nives Dolšak, Stan and Alta Barer Professor in Sustainability Science, Director, School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, University of Washington, Seattle

Panelists:
  • Lylianna Allala, Climate Justice Director, City of Seattle Office of Sustainability and Environment
  • Michael Carter, Green Jobs Program Manager, King County
  • Constance McBarron, Communications and Engagement Lead, Earthlab, University of Washington
  • Pah-tu Pitt, Native Kut, member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs
  • Vicky Raya, Climate Equity & Community Partnerships Program Manager, King County
