Jacqueline Patterson: Environmental and Climate Justice
Jacqueline Patterson is the Director of the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program. Environmental injustice, including the proliferation of climate change, has a disproportionate impact on communities of color and low-income communities in the United States and around the world. The NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program was created to support community leadership in addressing this human and civil rights issue. Since 2007 Patterson has served as coordinator & co-founder of Women of Color United.

Jacqui Patterson has worked as a researcher, program manager, coordinator, advocate and activist working on women’s rights, violence against women, HIV&AIDS, racial justice, economic justice, and environmental and climate justice. This talk will set the tone for more workshops and talks in collaboration with Hampshire College around environmental and climate justice. This program is available free of charge thanks to funding from the Roddenberry Foundation to Hampshire College.

TUESDAYSEPTEMBER 25, 2018AMHERST, MA
Buzz on EVs Amherst
Get the Buzz on Electric Vehicles (a free workshop)
Curious about electric vehicle (EVs)s? How they work, how far they can go on a charge? An increasing number of electric vehicles on the market are competitively priced and can go over 100 miles on a charge. Arrive early for a brief ride around the parking lot in a plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt.

I’ll give an overview of what EVs and plug-in hybrid EVs available, their features and range, big incentives that bring down their purchase price, charging an EV and matching the right EV and charger with your driving habits and needs. You’ll also learn about pairing solar power for your home with the charging demands of your car, and when to charge for the lowest carbon impact.

With Sally Pick, SJP Environmental Consulting
Donations and registration appreciated
