Climate Justice Collective
Many of us feel tension between wanting to know what is happening so that we can support one another, but on the other hand, needing to block out the bad news to avoid vicarious trauma. In this collective, we will confront the reality of the climate emergency while at the same time acquiring new tools for spiritual resilience and healing. We will explore the work of grassroots climate justice activists, particularly those who are LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and other sexual minorities) and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). We will discern together the gifts we each offer to this work, and support each other in moving from awareness to action
