The first-ever Presidential Forum on Environmental Justice was held on Friday night in South Carolina. Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman and former EPAofficial Mustafa Ali co-moderated the event.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, Tom Steyer, Marianne Williamson, John Delaney, and Joe Sestak took part in the forum at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg.
The forum — hosted by the National Black Caucus of State Legislators and leaders from the frontline and tribal communities, civil rights, youth and environmental organizations — included discussion on how presidential hopefuls intend to manage the impacts of the climate crisis on the communities most affected.
