In the face of the growing threat posed to Rhode Island by climate change, how can urban land support sustainable food availability for diverse communities? As one of the most urban states in the country, how is our Rhode Island’s land used and by whom? Three panelists will answer these questions and discuss efforts underway to empower communities disproportionately impacted by environmental and public health risks and have limited access to natural places. Speakers include Chris Gaynor from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, Julius Kolawole from the African Alliance of Rhode Island, and Jake Stanton from Southside Community Land Trust. This community conversation is hosted by the Lippitt House Museum, the Providence League of Women Voters, and the Southside Community Land Trust. This online conversation is free to attend, but registration is required.
