Black August: An Introduction to Just Transition Lawyering
Thursdays in August, online
In partnership with the Red, Black & Green New Deal initiative at the Movement for Black Lives, the NAACP Environmental & Climate Justice Program and University of California @ Irvine School of Law, the GCCLP invites practicing Black, Indigenous and attorneys of Color, legal educators, law students and justice allies in the legal field to a webinar series in August created to provide an introduction to Just Transition Lawyering.
Responding to the impact of the global climate crisis on natural resources, frontline communities, human rights, and democracy, Just Transition Lawyering provides strategic and allied support to the leaders and communities anchoring and building the environmental & climate justice movement. Just Transition Lawyering works to end discriminatory and destructive practices and policies while imagining new, justice-oriented alternatives using the law and legal system. The Just Transition Lawyering webinar series explains basic concepts of climate change, racial justice, economic justice, and Just Transition Lawyering through the lens of lawyers on the frontlines.
Air It Out Series
Fourth Tuesdays, June – September, online
A four-part political education series every fourth Tuesday of the month from June through September. This education series is unique in that we chose topics where there is tension among leaders within the climate justice movement. We will hear from the experts, learn the pros and cons for these topics, and decide for ourselves where we stand. Topics include carbon pricing, biomass, community & utility solar, and climate financing.
Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions to our expert panelists. These sessions are open to all; so please share with your networks. They will also be recorded and available for use for your own education and organizing purposes.
