Addressing the climate crisis requires broad and powerful coalitions. However, oppression continually divide and separate people, making it harder to create and sustain these coalitions. In this workshop, we will move beyond the concept of “enemies” which fuels every form of separation.
This workshop will explore an evolution in strategy for climate justice organizing that transcends the oppressive concept of human enemies. Caring for people and all living beings remains central as we develop a strategy more focused on opposing all systems of human oppression. We will explore the tools that can assist us to make a critical shift in our collective mindset. This shift can enable us to engage more people, act more decisively, and support effective, united global action.
