LONG BEACH — The Environmental Justice Committee of A3PCON (Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council) will share Asian American and Pacific Islander community perspectives on how climate change is harming the health and well-being of families here and in Asia and the Pacific, and what can be done about it.

Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda struck the Philippines in November 2013.

The event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM), 695 Alamitos Ave. (at East 7th Street) in Long Beach. Parking is available on the south side of 7th Street, just east of Alamitos (Museum of Latin American Art annex parking lot).

This program is in solidarity with the worldwide movement demanding real and effective action from the international climate conference in Paris (http://350.org/paris/).

“We need a climate deal that’s in line with the imperatives of science and justice,” event organizers said. “Keep 80 percent of fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.”

For more information, call (213) 239-0300 or email EJC@A3PCON.org before Dec. 12 or (323) 356-6352 on Dec. 12.
