The Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, Inc. in collaboration with Texas Southern University, will host the Sixth Annual HBCU Climate Change Conference, September 20 – 23, 2018. The purpose of the conference is to bring together HBCU faculty, students, researchers, climate professionals and environmental justice and coastal community residents impacted by toxic facilities and severe weather events related to climate change to bridge the gap between theory and the experiential realities of climate change. The conference will address issues related to climate justice, adaptation, community resilience, global climate issues, and other major climate change topics (i.e. transportation, energy sources, carbon emissions, green jobs/green economy, just transition, and community economic development).
