I belong to an underrepresented community, so I know how important it is to take part in all the discussions being held, not only about the environment but about everything. As someone who is also learning about climate change, I believe that I have a pretty good idea of how to engage people who are unfamiliar with the topic. I think that we, as black people, often look at this discussion as something somewhat removed from our lives, because we are being targeted by structural racism in so many ways that immediately impact our survival, that we are not considering how the environment is also a key issue. I commit to making it visible for more and more people that look like me.
