2nd Annual Conference: Shifting Climates, Shifting People

Event Date: 
October 21, 2021 to October 22, 2021

Iliff Center for Ecojustice logoThe Center for EcoJustice at the Iliff School of Theology (Denver) will be hosting its second annual conference on “Shifting Climates, Shifting People” on October 21 and 22, 2021.

The two-day conference, to be held virtually, will focus on the intersection of environmental racism and immigration. The conference will address critical questions, including: What impact does shifting climate have on populations whose lands are being devastated? Forced to leave, what impact does shifting people have upon overstrained world resources?

“Missing from most conversations concerning the current environmental crises is the role racism plays on those most affected by the degradation of the land,” said Miguel De La Torre, Director at the Center for EcoJustice. “Also, missing from most discussions on our current immigration crisis is the role failed crops and droughts are having in the global south due to changing climate. This year we are focused on the intersection of climate change and immigration.”

The conference schedule and registration will be available by May 1.
