Communities of color and working-class people are the first and most impacted by climate disasters — droughts, storms, and wildfires — as well as the poverty and pollution burdens of the dig, burn, dump economy causing these events. Organizers in these communities, with lived knowledge of these impacts, are applying their power, wisdom, and vision to tackle the climate crisis with Just Transition strategies to build resilient, regenerative, and equitable economies to meet the needs of our common future.
