Sol2Sol: The Indigenous and POC-led alternative to the Global Climate Action Summit
This week, California Governor Jerry Brown is co-chairing the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, which is bringing together business executives and politicians to discuss solutions to climate change. Many grassroots activists say the summit is too focused on market based approaches that do not prioritize people on the front lines, especially people of color and indigenous communities.
They’re hosting a parallel gathering called Solidarity to Solutions. We’ll speak with Sol2Sol participants from across the country about the movement for climate justice.
