You’re invited to join with our colleagues at Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (WPSR) for a discussion and training on how Washington health professionals can support a state recovery that prioritizes the health of our climate and communities. Though this event is primarily geared towards health professionals in Washington State, the information presented will still be relevant to health professionals and public health advocates in Oregon.
Both Oregon's and Washington's public health response must include investments in climate resiliency, sustainability, and the long-term economic security of those hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis. The voices of health professionals are needed to ensure that any state policy response protects public health and upholds the principles of climate and economic justice.
Learn how health professionals can advocate for a just recovery by elevating the Climate Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy’s new “Resilient Future Platform.” Our colleagues will outline how the principles of this platform are critical to upholding public health in the face of a statewide recovery, and provide resources and guidance on how you can contribute to this campaign going forward.
As health professionals, our voice carries weight, and it is our responsibility to use our power and privilege to protect our climate and our most vulnerable communities as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
