WHY CLIMATE JUSTICE
"Climate Justice" recognizes the ways in which all forms of oppression are linked and the ways in which climate change causes and impacts are unequally distributed. Far too often, those who are least responsible for climate change are most impacted — and those who've caused the most harm suffer least.
Climate justice globally recognizes the impact of our actions on people and places around the world. It calls us to action in struggles for justice and transformation going on beyond our borders, and draws us into solidarity with organizers worldwide.
Climate justice locally entails action to reject and dismantle ongoing colonialism, racism, classism, sexism, and other forms of oppression. It broadens our framework for justice from climate alone, toward an intersectional approach to organizing; and movement building. It centres the needs and concerns of those who are most marginalized, and those most impacted.
We aim to support frontline communities who are experiencing (and have experienced) social, cultural, physical and emotional harm. We celebrate successes and survival and we oppose systems of oppression.
