The Story:

It is important that we braid the tools of climate justice and positive peacebuilding to address climate crises that are triggering violence and injustice. Climate change exacerbates the harm of ethnic or racial exclusion and inequity. Flooding, water scarcity, and community health disparities increase the suffering of undersupported communities. Climate Justice can offer impetus for compassion and collaborative problem solving and recovery.
