Why a forum on Climate Justice?
- Climate change is not just something that happens up in the atmosphere; it is the new battleground for racial, gender, economic, immigration and ecological justice.
- Climate justice, with roots in the struggle for environmental justice, is a movement to dismantle systems of oppression, alleviate the unequal burdens created by climate change, and make a just transition toward more sustainable ways of living.
- This forum will provide a space for members of organizations in Portland working for systemic change to come together and talk about how our organizing intersects, with an eye toward the relationship between our local organizing efforts and the global ecological crisis. It is one step on a long path toward building a broad-based movement for justice, liberation, and a livable world. Join us!
