Brown 104, University of Virginia School of Law, Charlottesville, VA

Presented by the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, Health Law Association and Virginia Environmental Law Forum

Climate change threatens access to clean air, drinking water, housing and food without regard for equity. Indigenous communities are uniquely impacted by these threats to natural resources; without these resources, indigenous health outcomes suffer. In the face of this increasingly urgent health issue, scholars, organizers and engineers are working toward equitable solutions. Join panelists for a discussion about the problems that climate change creates for conservation efforts and indigenous health outcomes and learn about emerging solutions to these problems.
