Withstanding the Heat: Labor and Justice in a Warming World

On Monday, February 28, 2022, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the second part of its 6th report on the climate, this installment focusing on the effects of climate change on people and ecosystems.

Join us on Tuesday 8 March at 6 PM via Zoom for a special program about the report in the context of labor and justice, focusing in particular on the people whose job it is to work under the sun, among them farmworkers, construction workers, and roofers. This special program will take us through the health risks of heat stress (Cheryl Holder, MD, FIU), the intersections between literature, labor, and climate change (Sarah Wald, University of Oregon), and the personal narratives of those working outdoors (Oscar Londoño, Martha Gabriel, and Andrés Villegas).
