Join the Climate Advocacy Lab as we host the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and BlueGreen Alliance for a combination presentation-workshop on their recent report "Resilience Before Disaster: The Need to Build Equitable, Community-Driven Social Infrastructure."

This 90-minute session will cover the process of facilitating this collaboration between environmental justice and labor forces, how they built a shared vision around resilience, a rundown of the report's key findings, and a guided activity for how to apply the report's insights to participants' local communities and organizing work.

Panelists will include:
Amee Raval, Research Director at APEN
Marguerite Young, Assistant Director of SEIU's Climate and Environmental Justice Program
Sam Appel, California State Manager at BlueGreen Alliance
