“The prosperity of fossil-fueled societies has been built on the backs of historically marginalized communities: Indigenous Peoples, coal miners, fisherfolk, working class communities across the world—all of whom have paid the price of our “cheap fuels” and will suffer the consequences of global climate chaos disproportionately. Solutions that protect the welfare and rights of these communities will prove more durable, more equitable, and safer—for all of us.” —Dallas Goldtooth, It Takes Roots and Indigenous Rising delegate, Indigenous Environmental Network
It Takes Roots to Weather the Storm is a collaboration between Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, the Indigenous Environmental Network, and the Climate Justice Alliance that brought over 100 leaders from US and Canadian grassroots and indigenous communities to mobilize in Paris during the COP21 negotiations. Join them for a national reportback on Paris with leaders from across the country. They will share about the social movements' defiance of the protest ban in Paris, the frontline leadership from Indigenous Peoples, migrant rights solidarity and movement building, the role of the US, and our assessment on the impact of the Paris Climate Accord.
There are two opportunities to catch this national reportback. Both sessions will be interactive with live webcam video from delegates who were in Paris.
