Join us on Zoom for this community gathering. For our program, we will hear from Dr. Atyia Martin.

Closer to Ourselves, Closer to Nature
During our time together, Dr. Atyia Martin will explore the connection between racial equity, getting closer to ourselves, and getting closer to each other. She will also share how this is related to our ability to have a meaningful relationship with nature and take action to fight climate change.

She is CEO of the consulting firm, All Aces, Inc.; is the author of We Are the Question + the Answer: Break the Collective Habit of Racism + Build Resilience for Racial Equity in Ourselves and Our Organizations; and is a Distinguished Senior Fellow at Northeastern University’s Global Resilience Institute.
