Climate Action Rhode Island (CARI) and the Racial And Environmental Justice Committee will be hosting an evening of discussion in which Brianna Craft, author of Everything That Rises, will engage with panelists April Brown and Dannie Ritchie in a discussion of how climate activism and race intersect in the United States.
Brianna Craft is a senior researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). Craft works to further equity in the United Nations’ climate change negotiations for the world’s poorest countries, which have done the least to cause the climate crisis but are the most vulnerable to its impacts. Based in London, she researches climate diplomacy, taking specific interest in the Paris Agreement and provisions to develop and transfer technology. Craft holds a master’s degree in environmental studies from Brown University in addition to a bachelor’s degree in architectural studies and minors in urban design and planning, and environmental studies from the University of Washington.
