Breaking the Cycle: Building Climate-Resilient Communities

Mar 14, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Climate change is increasingly and disproportionately impacting vulnerable communities around the world, and both the fiscal and human costs are staggering. With the increasing number of natural disasters spurred by climate change, more lives are upended each year, especially for those living in poverty or environmental instability. Join the President of the Navajo Nation, Dr. Buu Nygren, and leaders from CORE and the American Red Cross for a discussion of how the global community can invest in preparedness and mitigation measures to build climate-resilient communities.
