Heather McTeer Toney addresses how we must embrace climate action as the social justice issue of our time, and tear down old stereotypes-so that we can build sustainable and resilient alliances to fight effectively together, and affirm our common humanity.

Heather McTeer Toney was the first African-American, first female and the youngest to serve as Mayor of Greenville, Mississippi from 2004-2012. In 2014, she was appointed by President Barack Obama as Regional Administrator for Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Southeast Region. She currently serves as the Climate Justice Liaison for the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Senior Advisor to Moms Clean Air Force, two affiliated organizations that represent over three million climate and environment allies committed to fighting climate change and protecting children from the dangers of air pollution.
