Event Navigation

This webinar is hosted by the Dogwood Alliance. More information.

Forests in the United States play a critical role by storing massive amounts of carbon and protecting communities from the onslaught of storms, droughts, and climate havoc. The role of forest protection in climate policy is often misunderstood by the climate movement, though; frequently driven by misleading industry narratives that promote more logging and fail to keep our forests standing.

Join our panelists on either October 6th at 5 PM ET or October 8th at 12 PM ET to learn

  • the impacts industrial logging have on our climate and communities
  • how our movement can resist false industry solutions, and
  • how incorporating forest protection into climate policy makes it stronger and more just
  • how industrial logging of US forests perpetuates systemic racism and the climate emergency
