------------------------

The People's Health Movement (PHM) Canada & USA are bringing together activists to talk about their work in climate justice to raise awareness about the social and health impacts of climate change and to mobilize communities toward achieving climate justice.

The effects of climate change on our environment are evident, and efforts to combat climate change must take into account social and health impacts people face everyday. Join us for a discussion with activists about how to bring these issues into policy and action on climate change. During this hangout we will talk to Nellis Kennedy-Howard and Bryan Parras about their work in communities, challenges they face, and strategies in the fight for climate justice.

Nellis works for Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal to Clean Energy Campaign as Senior Campaign Representative for Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and parts of Utah. Nellis is an attorney with certificates in Federal Indian Law and Natural Resources Law. A Native Coloradan Nellis currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has worked alongside Winona LaDuke as Co-Executive Director at Honor the Earth. Nellis believes climate justice is essential for the Seventh Generation and became an environmentalist after she learned of the largest uranium spill in the US that took place just miles from her family's home on the Navajo Reservation and has been poisoning generations of her family since.

Bryan is co-founder of t.e.j.a.s., Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services, which promotes environmental protection through education, policy, development, community awareness, and legal action. Bryan has worked to improve the health and safety of residents living near oil refineries in Houston, Texas and throughout the Gulf Coast.
