UC Davis CMSI Climate Justice Seminar Series: Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali

April 5, 2021 - 1:00pm

This virtual seminar and workshop series will explore how scientists can leverage their training and expertise to support the climate justice movement. The climate justice movement frames climate change not just as an environmental issue, but as a moral imperative to ensure that the needs of all people- regardless of race, geography or socioeconomic status- are included in the decisions about and solutions to climate change.
