Join Together 2020, a fully virtual service day made possible by the Boilers in Action and the Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership Development.
The day will start off with speakers discussing environmental justice and how it relates to COVID. Education about why people of color are disproportionately impacted by both climate change and Covid-19. Speakers will include a leader from the NRDC, a former U.S representative, a climate policy professor, local activists, and more! Hear about how people are fighting for climate justice during a global pandemic.
Afterwards, volunteers will go out and engage their local community, wherever they are! BIA will send each volunteer who signs up before December 1st a personalized list of service recommendations in their community.
Implement what you learn by taking action in your own community! Clean up, explore and appreciate your own community, wherever you are.
