Why Climate Justice?

Climate change is about more than pollution and emissions. At the root of the issue is social inequality and institutionalized racism that enables the exploitation of land, people, and resources to such a severe degree that our climate is changing and low-income and BIPOC communities across the world are suffering disproportionally. Climate justice seeks to address these systemic root causes by advancing a just transition away from fossil fuels and the extractive economy.
