The environmental justice project at the University of Colorado at Boulder was created by the University of Colorado Student Government (CUSG) to address the fact that communities of color and underprivileged populations are often unjustly burdened by environmental degradation and pollution. CU Climate Justice Team (CJT) is now in place to seek solutions that address the root causes of climate change while educating students, staff, faculty, and the Boulder community on the intersection of social, racial, and environmental injustices. CJT hosts various ways to get involved. Take the next step in your commitment to climate justice, or find meaningful ways to volunteer year-round!
See below for upcoming events:
On Saturday, Oct. 1 join CJT at the Harvest of All First Nations Festival to volunteer and make the event zero waste. The event will focus on reparations and earth-based decolonization through indigenous-led interactive workshops and community spaces. Come help make this beautiful event a reality and keep its footprint as small as possible.
The following week, on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 9am-3pm, the CJT will be hosting 'CU Climate Justice Workshop: Healing and Action'. This workshop aims to introduce Climate Justice in a variety of ways. We will revisit our forgotten history, engage in collective healing through music and dance, and learn the power of community organizing. Come learn how we are all part of the solution to issues such as climate change and social injustices.
