Indigenous, Immigrant, and Local Activists At The Forefront of Environmental Justice

California Adaptation Forum

On this edition of Your Call, we continue our weeklong series on the climate crisis by speaking with environmental justice activists.

We’ll find out how indigenous activists, immigrant activists, and others are working to preserve forests against deforestation, and advocating for clean energy, less pollution, and green jobs in their communities. What does environmental justice mean to people on the front lines of the climate crisis?
