Welcome to the Climate and Environmental Justice Action Team. We exist to expand CCLers' understanding of EJ perspectives and to build relationships with EJ communities.
Here's an example:
"There’s too much air pollution in urban hubs. In Newark, NJ, 1 in 4 people has asthma and people die of asthma in Newark. A little bit of money is not going to change that. Enforceable legal limits need to be put on the amount of pollution that companies can emit in places like this." -- Kimi Wei, EJ community member, activist, and action team Steering Committee member
Or to paraphrase, "Don't give me $100 when I'm dying."
CCL can benefit from engaging more with groups doing Climate and Environmental Justice work and finding common ground. We need an honest dialogue where we listen.
