About The CJI Blog

From December 7th through the 18th in Copenhagen, Denmark, thousands will gather for the Conference of Parties # 15 (a.k.a. “COP”) at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, where nations meet and deliberate in order to establish agreements to curb practices that contribute to climate change, as well as decide on the distribution of funding for adapting to climate change.

As we saw in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, communities of color are often disproportionately impacted by climate change. At the NAACP, we have an essential role to play in influencing the decisions being made at this meeting. NAACP Climate Justice Initiative Director Jacqueline Patterson will be blogging daily from Copenhagen, explaining the process from the ground and putting the spotlight on those U.S. communities affected by climate change.

    During the past several years, I have traveled abroad to Ethiopia, South Africa and London. More and more, despite my role as a senior trial attorney, I would very much like to become active as an advocate in environmental issues, nationally and internationally. Please contact me to discuss the subject initiative and how I may offer my services.

    Warm regards.
