Sunday, November 1, 11 AM: Karen Jacobsen, the Henry J. Leir Professor in Global Migration at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, will speak at the Old South Church Forum on climate migration. Her talk will follow Sunday worship. Dr. Jacobsen is currently teaching a course at Tufts on climate change-related migration, and her research explores urban displacement and global migration systems, with a focus on the livelihoods and financial resilience of migrants and refugees. With the increase in climate migrants and refugees caused by fires, floods, drought, and other climate-related disasters, the issue is gaining increasing attention. The talk is sponsored by the Old South Church Climate Crisis Task Force.
