2017 Collins Lecture. At Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 147 NW 19th Ave, Portland. We will explore how climate change disproportionately affects the world’s most vulnerable people, triggering the loss of livelihoods, insecurity, forced migration and poor health. Polluted air and water, weather disasters and drought bring devastation to all, particularly those living in poverty. We will also discuss how fossil fuel production and transportation often impact the marginalized, as seen with the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock. Guest lecturers will be The Rev. Canon Sally Bingham, president and founder of Interfaith Power & Light (IPL) and canon for the environment in the Episcopal Diocese of California, and The Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, civil rights leader, climate change activist and retired pastor of the historic Providence Missionary Baptist Church of Atlanta. The Portland area location of the event is yet to be determined. Check back for developing details.
