Hi friends and allies,

While we grapple with the compound crises of climate change-fueled fires and storms, racial and economic injustice and COVID-19, – it’s time for us to come together. As we fight to protect Black, Indigenous, communities of color, and workers on the frontlines of these crises, we need to be stronger to support one another by organizing for immediate relief. 

That’s why on September 30th at 8pm EST, we’re organizing Stronger than Storms: Climate & Just Recovery Forum with some amazing partners and a powerful lineup of frontline leaders. We need you with us. RSVP now.


  • Jasilyn Charger, Indigenous Environmental Protector
  • Verónica Noriega, Mentes Puertorriqueñas en Acción, a non-profit organization organizing young people into social initiatives in Puerto Rico
  • Cesar Aguirre, Central California Environmental Justice Alliance
  • Xiye Bastida, Re-Earth Initiative, NYC youth climate activist, raised in Mexico as part of the Otomi-Toltec Indigenous Peoples  
  • Troy Robertson, Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy (GCCLP), Regional Organizer from New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez, RN, New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA), President
  • Moderator: Amira Odeh, 350.org, Caribbean and Gulf Organizer from Puerto Rico.

Instead of handing out billions in stimulus money to save failing fossil fuel companies and fuel more fires and storms, we demand these resources be redistributed to community relief.

Sign up to join us on September 30th at 8pm Eastern, when we will come together for the Stronger than Storms: Climate & Just Recovery Forum.

Let’s come together to connect the dots between climate disasters, hold fossil fuel billionaires accountable, and protect our communities. 


Yours in the movement,
