Follow on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/actdottv
Today, we’re seeing the climate crisis begin to chip away at our ability to survive on earth, as air pollution leads to higher rates of asthma and parts of the world become too hot for human life. And yet, climate change and healthcare are often treated as entirely separate issues. Here to talk about how these issues are inextricably linked, are activists Laura Packard and Margaret Klein Salamon.
Margaret Klein Salamon, PhD, is a clinical psychologist turned climate warrior whose work helps people to face the deeply frightening, painful truths of the climate emergency and transform their despair into effective action. Margaret is the author of Facing the Climate Emergency: How To Transform Yourself with Climate Truth, a radical new self-help guide for the climate emergency. She is the founder of The Climate Mobilization and the Climate Mobilization Project.
Laura Packard is a stage 4 cancer survivor that was blocked by President Trump on Twitter. She is a Denver-based health care advocate and small business owner, senior advisor to Ady Barkan’s PAC Be a Hero, co-chair of Health Care Voter, and founder of Health Care Voices, a non-profit grassroots organization for adults with serious medical conditions.
