As the co-author of the Green New Deal, Rhiana will break down the policy implications and answer questions around this innovative proposal. Yale Club of DC Event Co-Sponsored by Yale Black Alumni Association and Yale BlueGreen. In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic and chronic racial discrimination, this year has also seen climate chaos in the form of hurricanes, snowstorms, wildfires, floods, and heatwaves across the nation. These overlapping crises have exposed the systemic inequality that continues to disadvantage low-income communities and communities of color because of historic discrimination and disinvestment. It’s clear that future policies must address these intersecting crises and the Green New Deal (GND) proposes a roadmap to do just that. As the coauthor of the GND, Rhiana Gunn-Wright ’11 unpacks the policies in the GND that pave the way for a bold, equitable economic recovery with millions of good green jobs. This conversation, moderated by Laura Brush YSE’19, dives into the research and climate justice proposals that embed racial equity into future climate solutions. false
