Ufuoma Ovienmhada is one of the featured speakers at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute's talk on "Climate Justice and Mass Incarceration." People who are incarcerated are disproportionately vulnerable to climate hazards, and this population is often ignored and/or excluded from conversations about climate change. Carceral institutions and public policy are largely unprepared for the environmental threats that persist as a result of our warming planet. Using the recent report, Hidden Hazards: The Impacts of Climate Change on Incarcerated People in California State Prisons, as a starting point for discussion, speakers will explore ways to address the potentially deadly challenges for those who are incarcerated, as well as areas for further study and action.
