There is no climate justice without racial justice.
The youth climate movement supported the Strike for the Black Lives and showed up in full force on July 20th.
July 20th was an opportunity to present a united front in the fight for racial, environmental, and economic justice as well as healthcare and immigrant rights. We must show the world that movements for justice are in unanimous agreement: Black lives matter. We will not stop until our national and local leadership, policy, legal systems, workplaces, and schools reflect this truth.
We all want the same things for our families and communities: health, safety, economic security, and a solution to the climate crisis. That’s why we’re continuing to follow the lead of workers from all backgrounds across the country to demand transformative change. The power to shape our reality lies with us. Our fates are intertwined. We win together. We lose together.
