Update: These collaborative sessions will focus on questions about how justice and equity concerns are reshaping climate politics and what this means for building movement power or shifting political realities regionally and globally.
We will work together to gather perspectives from the various groups and members of our community to build a picture of what seems important and a sense of the landscape as seen from our diverse viewpoints and contexts. You can expect in-depth discussions with peers from across the region, working on a variety of complementary issues in different ways.
As we pull together a bigger picture view with each group, our hope is that participants will emerge with a more sophisticated situation analysis, as well as new ideas for integrating justice, ready for planning partnerships and projects in the coming year.
