"Leading with Justice: Net Zero Investing & Conversations on Climate Justice"
In partnership with The 22 Fund (The 22), Adasina Social Capital, Global Endowment Management (GEM) and Intentional Endowments Network (IEN), please join us on the “The 22 Fund Day," 2/22/22, at 12:30 PM PT for a conversation around climate justice with the the release of the paper Leading with Justice: Net Zero Investing & Conversations on Climate Justice.
Climate Justice IS Social and Economic Justice
Today, there is extensive evidence demonstrating how climate change disproportionately affects low-income people and populations of color who are at the frontlines of higher risks of heatwaves, extreme weather events, environmental degradation and subsequent labor market dislocations. For investors, our choices of where to invest and how to invest have meaningful ramifications for these communities. Frontline communities, who are hit first and hardest, are the best positioned to effectuate change, but are consistently overlooked as a source of solutions.
Hear from a panel of experts on the impact and interdependence of climate, social and economic justice.

About The 22 Fund
The number 2 is auspicious in numerological circles and we believe that 2/22/22 is an auspicious day for The 22 Fund. The 22 was named after The 22 pobladores, the men and women of color who founded and built Los Angeles to become a vibrant and prosperous city of multi-diversity embracing technology and leading climate justice.
The 22 invests in women and people of color who are typically overlooked by traditional sources of capital, yet who are leading companies at the forefront of climate solutions and social and economic justice. By investing in clean tech, high growth manufacturing, we are not only providing climate solutions in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods most directly damaged by the climate crisis, but we are also providing high paying jobs in these communities. Our holistic approach to impact investing embraces Climate Justice, as well as Social and Economic justice, while providing high returns to our investors.
