Equity and Health Action Group
TCAT is launching a new Equity and Health Action Group under the direction of Marisa Caughlan, our Community Engagement and Equity Coordinator. This group will focus on Equity and Health as it pertains to climate change and climate justice. Some things this group aims to focus on in the realm of Equity is work with local BIPOC leaders and local government to ensure the just distribution of the benefits of climate protection efforts and help to alleviate unequal burdens created by climate change. When it comes to health we will work on educating the public on how climate change is affecting our health and wellbeing through the impacts of extreme events, worsening air quality and changes in the spread of infectious diseases. This group will work on supporting those who are impacted the most by changes in climate.
