Migrant justice and Indigenous self determination: A good place to start when acting on climate

Our climate is a complex, interconnected web. Pull one strand and the entire web begins to unravel. As human beings wrestle with a radical revisioning of our global economic paradigm, the teachings of the migrant justice and indigenous rights social movements are more important than ever. Representing a massive percentage of Canada's workforce in the near future, Canada's most historically marginalized populations are going to represent a major part of Canada's economic power and this has significant meaning.

As the national conversation on climate change continues, what will be the economy of the future? What are we doing to tear down systems of white supremacy and patriarchy actively criminalizing indigenous and migrants climate justice organizing in Canada? What role does Indigenous knowledge play in fighting the global climate crisis?
