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.

The Climate Justice Project was a partnership with Puget Sound Sage to create a grassroots committee made up of young leaders of color organizing to challenge systems of oppression. From May to July 2015, the committee surveyed 150 people from South Seattle on what climate change meant to them and what they’d like us to focus on. This Town Hall is a continuation of those conversations.
