Dear friend,

We come to climate work because we believe in justice, and we join progressive groups to support the uprising that is demanding that racist systems be dismantled, starting with an immediate end to racist policing policies and cultures that result in disproportionate death and incarceration. 

So what can we do? We can join the protests; we can donate to relevant organizations supporting long term change and short term emergencies (as we detailed here, in last week’s newsletter about Black Lives Matter). We must dig deep to understand how our systems perpetuate and even depend upon racism. We must also internalize the links between climate change and social injustice, and keep justice issues at the center of our work.

Here are some resources to help us move to understanding, and from understanding to action:

For justice and peace,
