My post just went up on the Population and Development Program’s blog about their recent convening, “Bridging Movements to Build Climate Justice,” which I attended in Tarrytown, NY. The convening brought together grassroots and non-profit leaders in the environmental and climate justice movements with the reproductive justice movement.
Here’s a peak at my reflection, then go on over to PopDev to read the full post:
“As the Occupy movement continues to spread, the convening also gave me tools to bring my values and perspectives into other social change movements. For every budding movement strategist who is convinced that bringing a gender, race, or class lens into their work is counter-productive, divisive, or somehow beside the point, the convening was strong evidence that only once we engage these discussions, identify faultlines and shared struggles and address them, then we can created a united front.”
