Why I Care -
The environment has always been something I have been concerned about. Growing up, there was always the idea of a climate crisis looming in the back of my mind. However, it always seemed like it was in the far future. A post-apocalyptic type dystopia that would never exist in my lifetime. As I became older, and the urgency for change seemed more present. The daunting thought of a world changed from the inevitable climate crisis no longer seemed like a plot to a movie I would never see, it is my reality. It is everyone's reality.
My heart breaks with every disaster I see on the news, the evermore frequent they become. The Octobers I once enjoyed for their chilly days are quickly disappearing. Climate change is here, it is happening, and it is effecting all of us. Everyone has a connection to the fires, floods, and storms that are so common yet broadcasted as if they could never have been predicted (plot twist-they can, have been, and will continue to be predicted).
Even more, my heart breaks for those effected by the climate crisis who do not have the resources to fight back or to protect themselves. I acknowledge the ways in which I am privileged when it comes to the climate crisis. I can afford to buy organic food, I am able to shop sustainably, my health would not be effected by a sudden power outage controlled by a corporate control room, I have the resources and support and the ability to fight the climate crisis head on.
Climate Solidarity was an idea born out of compassion and empathy for those feel drained or overwhelmed with the persistence of climate change. We believe that community support is one of our greatest tools in addressing the ways we deal with this crisis. Through genuine emotional and spiritual connection, we hope to give everyone the hope and confidence needed to fight the climate crisis.
