Environmental Racism and Work in a Warming World
The CBTU Environmental Racism research project brings a vision of community engagement and mobilization around climate change by drawing Black Trade Unionists, and other racialized communities, into the fight to slow global warming while developing pathways to green jobs.
CBTU is launching a social media campaign, using the hashtag [#EnvRacismCBTUACW], to engage racialized and indigenous communities in the process of discovering what has been written so far about environmental racism in the fight against climate change. Our focus is Canada, but we are including experience from the U.S. or the world if it is relevant to our situation.
We will develop a final bibliography, building upon existing research, which will be used to design a participatory training workshop to engage the community in the struggle to slow climate change and identify pathways to green jobs.
