Social Justice Forum Tackles Climate and Racial Justice

Westminster welcomes Sam Grant, PhD, the Executive Director of MN350, to the Social Justice Forum, on Sunday, January 24. He will discuss MN350’s work at the intersection of climate and racial justice.

MN350 is part of the global organization 350—the first worldwide grassroots climate movement. Last fall the Eco-Justice Ministry Team co-sponsored Bill McKibben, cofounder of the global organization 350 to speak at the Westminster Town Hall Forum. Grant’s presentation is the first of two January Social Justice Forums focused on environmental justice. On Sunday, January 31 the forum will welcome Julia Nerbonne from Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light.

Sandy Wolfe Wood, Eco-Justice Ministry Team chair, shared, “Personally I am looking forward to Sam’s talk because the environmental movement has not done a good job of addressing the impact of climate change, sea-level rise, species extinction and toxic waste dumps on communities of color and those without money or a dominant voice.”

Hear Grant speak during the Social Justice Forum at 9:15 am on Sunday, January 24, on Westminster’s livestream channel.
