A regional sociology professor will lead a free, hour-long virtual presentation to discuss how climate change affects social disparities as well as strategies to build a more equitable future.
The Center for Energy Education will host a webinar Friday, December 8, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. featuring Dr. Andrew Raridon, who will share his insights about Connecting Climate Change and Social Inequality.
The Mary Baldwin University assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice will discuss the climate crisis and its relationship with social inequality.
Raridon, who earned his PhD in sociology from Purdue University, serves as the faculty director of the Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement and is on the board of the Hoosier Young Farmers Coalition.
He studies inequality and activism in the food system and has engaged in a variety of community-based projects to help make food systems more resilient and equitable.
