Rev. Mariama White-Hammond on Climate Justice: What It Requires Of Us All

Putting Equity At the Center Of Our Movement 
Join us at the Beacon Hill Friends House on the evening of Tuesday, June 19, to hear the Reverend Mariama White-Hammond speak about climate justice — the history of the term, what it requires us of all, and concrete suggestions for how we can all shift in a more just direction as we work to act on climate.

Rev. Mariama White-Hammond serves as the Minister for Ecological Justice at Bethel AME Church in Boston and as a fellow with the Green Justice Coalition, a partnership of environmental justice groups. Rev. Mariama is committed to engaging the faith community on social justice issues, and speaks throughout the country and serves on a number of boards and committees including the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund, Union Capital Boston and the Moral Movement Massachusetts. In 2017 she was the MC for both the Boston Women’s March and the Boston People’s Climate Mobilization. Rev. Mariama has received numerous awards including the Barr Fellowship, the Celtics Heroes Among Us, and the Boston NAACP Image Award.

This presentation is part of the Beacon Hill Friends House’s Spring 2018 speaker series, “Living Our Values” – exploring what it means to truly live in alignment with the values we hold. All are welcome. The talk will be held in the accessible Meeting Room on the ground floor of the Friends House, a 5-minute walk from the Park Street “T” station on the Red and Green lines. RSVPs appreciated at Facebook or Eventbrite.
