Building off the momentum of the Just Transition Assemblies and direct actions, Got Green joins forces with other organizations like NWDC Resistance, Community to Community, Familias Unidas por la Justicia, and Rising Tide to build an intersectional movement for racial, gender, economic, and environmental justice. We are committed to demanding climate justice at the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris, and challenging systems that perpetuate the oppression of our communities and Mother Earth. In order to address climate change, we must view the health of the community and the environment as interlinked and address the injustices happening to communities of color both locally, nationally, and in the Global South – food insecurity, criminalization, privatization, and displacement.
