Join the Rural Assembly, The Daily Yonder, and Southerly for a conversation about how frontline communities are preparing for and adapting to climate change effects — and how the pandemic is impacting that work. It will livestream on the Daily Yonder’s YouTube page.

Southerly editor Lyndsey Gilpin will moderate a panel of local experts from around the South and across the country:

Shirell Parfait-Dardar, traditional chief of the Grand Caillou/Dulac Band of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Tribe

Dr. John Cooper, Assistant Vice President for Public Partnership & Outreach and the Director of Texas Target Communities

Steve Wilensky, President of Calaveras Healthy Impact Product Solutions (CHIPS) and former Calaveras County, California supervisor
