Our panel is called What We’re Up Against.
We do not want to leave folks with the impression that what we have before us is a long list of challenges that we all face. Although that is the case in many instances, and today it is very obvious what the challenges before us are, and we can often feel like we are in times of crisis. Instead I really want you all to
understand the opportunities that arise in some of these challenge areas and what the work is that we can do to embrace those opportunities.
We mentioned the Green New Deal. I think in this time of climate crisis there is an opportunity to go back and hopefully do our best to address some of the racial, social, and economic inequities that have long persisted in this country.
