Climate Change, Environmental Justice, and Our Community
When addressing systems change within sustainability, we must first understand the three pillars. The environment, the economy, and equity must all be considered in policy, planning, and implementation in order to be successful, especially for climate action. We cannot begin to address a sustainable future without first addressing racist and inequitable systems that disproportionately affect our black communities and communities of color. Advocating for a cleaner planet also means advocating for racial justice.
