Ending Racism and Classism in the Climate Movement

Monday, September 21
18:00 – 19:30 BST


Classism pits workers against each other. Racism hurts and divides us from each other and from our natural environment. Classism and racism structure our institutions. These institutions systematically ensure that wealth and power are hoarded, and that all workers are deprived of much of the resources they have earned, often making survival difficult. Conflict over resources hides the damage to the earth caused by our extractive economy. To be effective in restoring our ecosystems, we have to heal these divisions and build unity.

In this workshop we will:
★ Learn how classism and racism work together to disrupt our efforts to protect ourselves, each other, and our environment
★ Look at costs of racism and classism on individual lives, interpersonal connections, relationships, and our attempts to work together
★ Identify how classism and racism show up in the environmental movement
★ Learn the approaches of Sustaining All Life and United to End Racism to heal these divisions, build unity, and more effectively organize a just transition to an economy that can sustain all life
