    Episode 6 - Climate Justice = Racial Justice, feat. Leah Thomas (a.k.a. GreenGirlLeah, an intersectional environmental activist) and Sam Grant, Executive Director of 350.org in Minnesota

    Episode 6 - Climate Justice = Racial Justice, feat. Leah Thomas (a.k.a. GreenGirlLeah, an intersectional environmental activist) and Sam Grant, Executive Director of 350.org in Minnesota

    We know that the climate crisis will affect us all. But will it affect us all equally? The answer –simply enough– is no. In recent weeks, the world has witnessed an outpour of rage, sadness, and empowerment in response to the ongoing police brutality against the Black community. Recognizing that we cannot achieve Climate Justice without Racial Justice, we are joined by Executive Director of 350.org (http://350.org/) Minnesota, Sam Grant, and Intersectional Environmentalist, Leah Thomas, better known as GreenGirlLeah, to discuss the underlying systems of racist inequality that have contributed to the Climate Crisis.

Quality and valuable information, a must for everyone because climate change affects us all

DUDABI ,

Please listen to our youth!

Our climate is changing in front of our eyes. From the fires of the Amazon, California, and in Australia to the ever increasing temperatures like we have seen in May, 30C in the Arctic yesterday....our planet is indeed on fire! We MUST act now while we can still avert the worst. We have the solutions. We just need to demand much needed change!
