San Francisco Climate Action Plan Workshop: Climate & Equity*
Tuesday, February 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The City and County of San Francisco invites you to a virtual public workshop to learn about San Francisco’s updated Climate Action Plan and how it will address racial and social equity. Attendees will have an opportunity to share feedback, concerns, and priorities on the draft strategies and actions, and provide input on how the City can put forth a plan that tackles climate change and advances racial justice.
No need to have a background in climate issues – whether you are joining the conversation for the first time, or have attended past events, we invite all San Francisco community members to participate.
The workshop will feature keynote speaker, Jacqui Patterson, Senior Director, Environmental and Climate Justice Program, NAACP, who will discuss the connections between racial and social inequities and climate change, and why climate change is a racial justice problem. Following this presentation, City staff will provide an overview of the updated Climate Action Plan. You’ll learn about the climate action planning and development process and how the new plan aims to address other critical issues, including economic recovery, public health, and resilience.
The second half of the workshop will include small group discussions focused on reviewing a selection of the draft strategies and actions. The project team will lead structured conversations to hear your ideas and get feedback on how the City can achieve its aggressive climate goals, without leaving anyone behind.
The workshop will be held via Zoom, an online video/audio conferencing platform. We encourage you to join from a personal computer, tablet, or smartphone with an internet connection, as that will help you see the presentation. There is also an option to join by phone only if internet access is not available.
