Hi and welcome to our first-ever Climate Connections series! We’re diving into intricacies of how racial justice and climate change are connected and directly impacting each other in a system that continues to hurt and oppress. Kimberlé Crenshaw coined the term “intersectionality” to ensure these connections are not overlooked. In a 10-week series, we will focus on the intersectionality of racial justice, climate change, and other important global issues as an opportunity to unlearn, reflect, and expand our knowledge. Leading with curiosity and humility, our objective is to connect the dots and dig deeper into the pervasiveness of racism and its impact on our planet.
We will share a range of readings, videos, and opportunities to support, donate, and recognize Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who are leading these efforts. We value the work to turn over every rock possible and we hope you join us in the continuing efforts to combat racial injustice and climate change. At Climate Creative, we are a team of unique human beings set on a mission to influence equitable change through art, action and education.
