Bedrock Lectures: Jacqueline Patterson

Organizing Across Movements: Advancing Systems Change Through Collective Visioning and Action

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 10:00 AM

In the months leading up to the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change, Spring Creek Project presents the Bedrock Lectures on Human Rights and Climate Change.

This online series features leading scientists, attorneys, writers, community leaders, activists, and artists. Together, the lectures create a chorus of voices and ideas that will invite audiences to imagine how we can build communities and lives in a world where environmental crises quickly become human rights crises.

We will release a new Bedrock Lecture every Wednesday from January 31 to May 30, 2018. The lectures are free and publically available on our website and social media channels. Each lecture will be about 20 minutes, and we invite you to watch them from your desk, with a group of friends, or at a community gathering.


Jacqueline Patterson, Director of NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program, will share her lecture, "Organizing Across Movements: Advancing Systems Change Through Collective Visioning and Action," on March 28, 2018. 

Currently the Director of Environmental and Climate Justice at the NAACP, Jacqui Patterson, MSW, MPH, has worked on international and domestic issues including gender justice, racial justice, economic justice, and environmental and climate justice, with organizations including Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, IMA World Health, United for a Fair Economy, ActionAid, Health GAP, and the organization she co-founded, Women of Color United.  She also currently serves on the Boards of Directors for the Institute of the Black World, Center for Story Based Strategy, the National Black Workers’ Center, Fresh Coast Capital, the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions, The River Network, the American Society of Adaptation Professionals, as well as on Steering Committee for Interfaith Moral Action on Climate Change, and the Advisory Board for the Center for Earth Ethics and the Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity Initiative.
