The panelists included Kavya Crasta ’21, who recently graduated with an interdisciplinary concentration in Law and Social Justice Studies, and Maggie Reilly and Mona Perrotti, who co-lead the Climate Crisis Working Group for Indivisible Mohawk Valley.

The panelists also talked about what gives them hope for the future and how women, particularly BIPOC women, bear the brunt of the impacts of climate change.
