  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.
