IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES AND THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH


OUR MISSION — As the climate changes leading to droughts, storms, and sea level rise, people will be forced to migrate. In low-lying countries and many water-scare regions including much of Africa, people are already migrating to safer grounds.

Unfortunately, most countries fail to welcome immigrants with the full rights and respect they deserve. When large numbers of people need to emigrate there is often conflict.

The United States has not yet committed to reducing its carbon emissions like most countries have. The United States also has a broken immigration system. It’s unfair that one of the countries most responsible for contributing to climate change continues to fail to act while at the same time failing to allow the people affected the most by climate change into its borders. It is unfair. And it is unjust.

The time for climate justice is now.
