The Climate Crisis is Racist: Anti-racism Today

Climate breakdown is rooted in the domination, oppression and exploitation of people and nature. These dynamics are perpetuated and empowered by very well structured and resourced systems, one of those systems is racism. In this session, we will explore the ways in which constructions of race and white supremacy have led to climate breakdown. We will hear from inspiring speakers who have been working towards climate justice for many years and learn from their experience.
