Join the Latino Staff Association (LaSA) for the next event in its Charlas de Café series, featuring

Michael Mendez, Ph.D., assistant professor of environmental policy and planning and visiting scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

As climate change advances, communities across the United States are adapting to the increased threat of wildfires. Such disasters are expected to become more frequent and severe. In this lecture, Dr. Méndez explores why it is crucial to understand how these events amplify existing inequalities, and how to lessen the resulting harms, in particular for the most stigmatized populations, such as undocumented Latino/a and Indigenous migrants.
