This virtual community will engage with the fields of environmental and climate justice, which address the ways systems of power create vulnerability in marginalized communities, produce unequal exposures to environmental hazards, and contribute to different forms of resistance. We invite scholars of or working on settler colonialism, racial capitalism, abolition, reparations, intersectionality, disability justice, queer and trans ecologies, ecofeminisms, political ecology, community-based participatory research/participatory action research, or those interested in these frameworks. Foci will range from social movements, coalition building, the relationship between climate science and justice struggles, policy agendas, demands, & implementation, to political representation as it relates to climate and environmental justice.
Please Note: We will be collaborating with the separate but complimentary VC, Environmental & Climate Change Politics, co-chaired by Juliet Carlisle and April Clark. Please contact us or see the virtual communities calendar for joint events. We hope that you join both virtual communities!
We will facilitate different types of events, including panel discussions, brainstorming sessions, scholar and activist dialogues, movement strategy meetings, peer and graduate mentoring, networking, and other events that community members are interested in holding.
