Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center for a series of online conversations with environmental and climate justice leaders from across the country this fall. Their work reveals frameworks and strategies to address the disproportionate impacts of climate change and environmental pollution on communities of color, indigenous, and low-income earners. Students in the Environmental & Climate Justice course* will facilitate the conversations.

Join us as we hear from Brenda Gutierrez Mora from Foodlink for Tulare County and Kassandra Hishida from the San Joaquin Valley Matriarchal Council for Agroecology. They will share their efforts to support food sovereignty and Land Back efforts including frameworks of agroecology and permaculture, Indigenous wisdom, and place-based

solutions beyond capitalism that bring health to the land, relatives, and all our relations.
