CLIMATE CHANGE EVENT @ the CENTER
"The Climate Change event was amazing. I thought it was a well planned event and I felt that I still have lots to learn about my environment. The two speakers, Cassidy Jones from Our Climate and the other was Shilpa Joshi from Renew Oregon, really taught me the knowledge of Climate Change and how it’s a problem globally. Before the event, I knew what Climate Change was but I never understood the effects of it. Attending to the Climate Change event at the CENTER and hearing the two guest speakers was something I don’t regret missing. The way the speakers discussed and presented the information was phenomenal. I gained a lot of knowledge and was able to look at the issue in a new perspective. Writing the letters at the end was cool because I felt apart of the action against the climate issues. The speakers really emphasized about how Climate Change really affects people on a racial perspective. Many poor African Americans are usually displaced and move near the freeway, which creates health issues with the pollution from cars."
