In a recent article, Krystal Vasquez, PhD Candidate at the California Institute of Technology, wrote about her experience studying air pollution from wildfires and her experience as a disabled researcher. She wrote, "while the fires themselves don't discriminate, there are systems in place that do." Join Krystal and Adriane Griffen, Senior Director of Public Health and Leadership at the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), in conversation with Climate for Health Director, Rebecca Rehr, to discuss disability rights as an important tenet of environmental justice, climate solutions, and disaster planning.
