One response to “Climate Justice Community Forum (new date, postponed from March 5)

  1. About 100 people attended this forum today at the Global Justice Center. The welcome keynote was by two Dine Navajos Kim Smith and Makai Lewis, who spoke of their Journey of Existence, a 1500 Dine Walk through their lands, over 11 months, to get answers from the land, not formal schooling. The Rising Tide Organizers spoke of the long SW drought, interconnection of global crisis and environmental changes, need for creativity and resiliency. Attended first workshop on Geographic Barriers in Tucson, with presenters from Unidos and Flowers & Bullets, which showed geographic maps of the poverty/ethnicity/food deserts/H20 rebate class attendance to show how ethnic/poor communities are vulnerable in Tucson, with less green space than other areas. Youth led groups such as these two are trying to find sustainability and seek climate justice for all. LD 10 House candidate Kirsten Engel was the only political leader present.
