President Joe Biden recently released his climate plan, which strives to address climate change and its disproportionate impact on marginalized communities. Biden’s plan provides solutions to these issues via three main approaches: communication, science, and policy. This event aims to discuss how we, as individuals, can influence and engage with these different aspects of this plan, and how these policies will ultimately impact us. Key themes discussed will include energy, biodiversity conservation, activism, and science-based approaches to combat environmental degradation. 

NYU DC Dialogues and Untold HerStories hosted a conversation with NYU Liberal Studies Professors Dr. Leo Douglas, Dr. Gerceida Jones, Dr. Eugenia Naro-Maciel, and current NYU Student and Climate Justice Activist Jamie Margolin who discussed how all of us can come together from different backgrounds to influence future climate change policy.

This program was open to everyone. Registration was required in order to receive log-in details for the Zoom webinar.

Welcome to NYU Liberal Studies Untold Herstories! This is a student-led NYUWomxn100 initiative working towards shining a well-deserved spotlight on womxn with transgender, non-binary, and cisgender experiences that have been historically overlooked and under-represented as a result of their gender or identity. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted some, but not all, womxn the right to vote for the first time in the United States, Untold Herstories will be posting weekly profiles, interviews, and artwork to honor the contributions, pursuits, and achievements of the womxn who inspire us. We will also be providing resources and hosting events on this website and our social media platforms for those looking to contribute to their own communities, so that they can begin to create their own stories.
