Katrina 14: Honoring Legacies of Courage- Connecting the Dots of Climate & Environmental Justice
Then, join us in Plaquemines Parish on Thursday to commemorate 14 years since Hurricane Katrina. The communities of South Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish are on the frontline of the climate crisis dealing with the first hits of a storm and some of the most severe land loss due to sea level rise on the planet. #Katrina14: Honoring Legacies of Courage will uplift and honor frontline local leadership advancing good work on the ground for the last fourteen years and beyond. Join us on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 12-3pm at the Percy Griffin Center (15577 Hwy 15, Braithwaite, LA 70040). Food and childcare will be provided. Click here to RSVP and join us!

Community Skills Training
Finally, on Saturday join us for a community skills training. Increased intensity of storms, hotter temperatures, flooding, drought and sea level rise are indeed connected to industrial pollution and extractive industries. We must confront these intersecting issues and build a vision for something better together. #Katrina14 Connecting the Dots on Environmental & Climate Justice will offer information and skills sessions on the impact of extractive infrastructure in the Gulf. Join us on Saturday, August 31st from 1-5pm at the Buras Community Center (36342 Hwy 11, Buras, LA 70041). Food and childcare will be provided. Click here to RSVP and join us! Note: Media Prohibited.
