Just Movement: Creating Equitable Pathways for Migration in the Wake of Climate Disaster
Across the globe, the effects of climate change-related disasters are exacerbating humanitarian crises, widening inequality, and driving vulnerable populations to move. Most climate disasters will displace vulnerable people within their own borders, but a small minority of populations – representing millions of individuals – will be unable to find durable solutions locally and will seek safety and livelihood across international borders. To meet this challenge, we have the opportunity to craft lasting protections for those displaced across borders and equity-focused policies to help long-standing communities adapt their lives and livelihoods to a changing climate. Please join this timely discussion with our illustrious panelists, hosted by one of the nation’s leading refugee agencies, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS):


Panelists:

Maxine Burkett, Senior Advisor to the Office of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC)

Swapna Reddy, Co-founder and Co-Executive Director of the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP)
