If you live in the New York area, you know firsthand that climate change is affecting the intensity and frequency of severe storms. What you might not know is that slavery is part of the problem.
You can learn about this connection, and other ways in which slavery creates environmental destruction, during a special presentation on Wednesday by FTS Co-founder Kevin Bales. He’ll be speaking at at event sponsored by Columbia University.
Kevin’s groundbreaking research has sparked and shaped the modern anti-slavery movement. His new work on the slavery-environment connection — including global climate change — underscores that modern-day slavery affects everyone on earth.
