Countering Climate Disinformation In Conversations and In the Media

Maegan Ramirez, Climate Justice Outreach Coordinator for the Union of Concerned Scientists

This joint session with JEA focuses on how to have difficult conversations and how to bridge the divide.

Maegan Ramirez is a program coordinator with the Climate & Energy program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. In her role, she supports the Climate Impacts team and helped establish a programmatic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion team. Prior to joining UCS, Maegan completed a research internship at the National Endowment for the Arts. She has also worked in higher education at the University of Texas at El Paso, and served as a Congressional District Leader for the ONE Campaign, which focuses on ending extreme poverty and preventable diseases. Maegan holds a BA in creative writing and political science from the University of Texas at El Paso, and an MFA in creative writing from American University.

JEA provides ongoing training and templates for monthly letter writing campaigns to local, state, and federal officials. The meetings provide a template, information, and guidance for all those who are interested in amplifying the message of Climate Justice.

Once you learn how easy Jewish Earth Alliance makes it, through their background information and template letter, for everyone to write letters to their federal officials, we hope you will write to your members of Congress now and for the next few months.
