Ending Racism and Classism in the Climate Movement

Monday, September 21, 1 pm EDT / 17:00 UTC

When our economy works as intended, it makes billions for a few people, at the cost of making billions of us poor and the near complete destruction of our natural ecosystems. No solution to ending racism, classism, or environmental degradation can come from this system. We must look at those forces in our movement to effectively address it.

How to Lead Listening Circles

Tuesday, September 22, 10 am EDT / 14:00 UTC

Interpreted into Hindi, Spanish, and Italian

Listening circles are a powerful way to build a strong, united climate movement. Facing climate breakdown and global injustice brings up many emotions, including anger, discouragement, and grief.  If we continually push our feelings down, they can interfere with our thinking, which makes our activism less effective. Taking turns listening gives each of us more space than usual to express whatever we feel. Then we think more clearly.
