Climate Justice: Municipal, Tribal, and Legal Action

Climate change is a matter of environmental justice and human rights: those groups least responsible for greenhouse gas emissions are not only the most significantly impacted, but those who have the fewest resources to adapt. As temperatures and seas rise, communities here in the United States are faced with health, financial, and environmental burdens as well as social and cultural disruptions—particularly people of color, low-income, and Indigenous communities. From cities to tribes to NGOs, local actors are stepping up to ensure resiliency plans include the needs and participation of those most vulnerable to the devastating impacts of climate change.
