Recent reports from the United Nations have sent dire warnings about future climate scenarios if global carbon emissions remain unchecked. In our own backyard, predictions for the Delaware Valley and South Jersey include increased precipitation, rising temperatures and more devastating storms.

Join StateImpact Pennsylvania and WHYY in a local discussion about the intersection of environmental justice, social equity and climate change as we explore what the potential damage to infrastructure, agriculture and the environment could mean for the public — especially among vulnerable communities.

Arrival early for drinks and hors d'oeuvres starting at 5pm. Registration is required.

This is the second of two events at the Kleinman Center on 9/12. At 4:30pm, Vox's Dave Roberts will lead a conversation with long-time climate activist Rafe Pomerance, exploring where we’ve been and where we’re going with our national climate action efforts. Learn more and register here.
