About the event
Join us and a panel of experts in our virtual forum for the latest Power of Voice event: Communication & the Climate Crisis in the Western United States and learn how communities and communication practitioners are handling the climate crisis that is affecting the Western United States.
The most severe harms from climate change fall disproportionately upon underserved communities who are least able to prepare for, and recover from, wildfires, heat waves, poor air quality, flooding, and other impacts. Join us for a conversation with industry experts on the intersection of environment, communication, and rural communities and hear how communication practitioners are handling the climate crisis that is affecting so much of the Western United States.
Moderated by Scholarly Assistant Professor Chelsea Thomas, M.S., the panel will include:
- Travis Mason-Bushman, Director of the National Grasslands Visitor Center
- Michelle Fredrickson (Comm ’16), Climate Change Epidemiologist at the Washington State Department of Health
- Ellen Gordon (Comm ’17), PR Specialist at Clean Water Services
- Quinn Ianniciello (Comm ’11), Creative Director for The Climate Pledge at Amazon Worldwide Sustainability
