"Climate justice is racial and economic justice. For too long, we have been told there is no viable alternative to the current social and environmental injustices facing our communities. Yet the pandemic has also illuminated the scale of mobilization possible when we choose to confront a crisis. A local Green New Deal and Just Recovery must direct this scale of collective action to take aim at the root causes of systemic injustices. Above all, we must recognize this moment in time as a call to action.”
