Organizing for Climate Action – The Opportunities of US-China Cooperation Webinar

September 27, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

From Justice is Global:

Join us and Rep. Jamaal Bowman on September 27th at 8PM EST for a discussion with climate, peace and racial justice organizations on the need for deeper US-China climate cooperation.

People in the United States, in China, and around the world are facing an urgent threat: climate change. Yet, as policy discourse consolidates around the inevitability of a “Cold War” with China, opportunities for the global climate cooperation we need are threatened.

Conflict escalation is diverting the resources we need for climate transition into conflict, and war between China and the U.S. would have devastating environmental impacts. By working together on shared challenges like climate change, we can gradually build a more stable relationship.

This is why it is so important for us to come together, to change our narratives and actions.

Our speakers:

  • Jamaal Bowman, House of Representatives, NY-16 Congressional District

  • Brandon Wu, Director of Policy and Campaigns, ActionAid USA

  • Russell Jeung, Professor of Asian American Studies, San Francisco State University & Co-founder, Stop AAPI Hate

  • Terry Fitzgibbons, Veteran and organizer, Veterans for Peace

  • Sandy Shan, Executive Director, Justice is Global
