Laura Flanders Show

Season 2, Episode 33 of 52

Could a city reduce violent crime by planting more trees? How will the culture of work adapt to the climate crisis? What will increased flooding in the Global South do to U.S. immigration patterns? In this month's edition of Meet the BIPOC Press, guest hosts Sara Lomax Reese and Mitra Kalita from URL Media are back with a panel of journalists whose reporting explores these questions and more. They center Black and Brown people in their reporting on the environment and the climate crisis. From Philadelphia, to Haiti, to Bangladesh, to the American Gulf Coast, their conversation draws connections among a vast array of frontline communities, the crises they face, and the tools they're using to respond. Then, Laura joins Sara and Mitra to reflect on how integrating the environment into policy could give us better solutions to society's biggest challenges. Guests: Ko Bragg, Editor, Race and Place, Scalawag Magazine; Charles Ellison, Executive Producer/Host, Reality Check on WURD Philadelphia; Garry Pierre-Pierre, Founder/Publisher, The Haitian Times; Sara Lomax-Reese, Co-Founder, URL Media (co-host); Mitra Kalita, Co-Founder, URL Media (co-host).
