Sustaining Ourselves as Activists & Organizers

To build and sustain a strong environmental movement, we need to have a place to share about the impact of the climate emergency on ourselves and about any discouragement we feel about taking action. We need support to maintain and build our connections with each other and to address difficulties together. And we need a place to heal from the effects of our oppressive societies. Join us to learn the approaches used by Sustaining All Life and United to End Racism to heal from the damage of oppression, increase our effectiveness in the climate justice movement, and prevent burnout.

War & Climate Change

Modern warfare causes tremendous loss of life. It is used as a tool of oppression (including racism, classism, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism) and genocide to install the dominant culture and to take control of land and resources. War makes huge profits for the owning class.War has caused unprecedented environmental destruction. Preserving the environment is one reason among many to stop war. Racism and Islamophobia against Arabs and Muslims make it more difficult for people to join together in a united response to war and its impact on the environment.
