MCAN is hosting a 3-part Zoom training series for our chapter leaders on anti-oppression. The goals of this series are to analyze how environmental racism and injustice affect our cities, towns, and chapters, and how we can combat the unequal effects of climate change using the structures we have built, like town meetings and chapter meetings. As a chapter leader, you’ve been on the forefront of mobilizing communities in Massachusetts to work towards clean energy and climate-friendly initiatives. This series will be interactive and feature great speakers, allowing us to connect and push our climate action to the next level.
Running three Mondays in a row, this series will begin on Monday April 20th, from 12pm-1pm. We will focus our first meeting on the roots of the climate crisis and how injustice is intertwined with our environment. The next meeting, on April 27th, we will continue to look at environmental racism and injustice and how it shows up in our own communities through the decisions we make and the relationships we build. Our last meeting, on May 4th, we will look closely into each of our communities and find groups that we can stand in solidarity with and support in ending the climate crisis.
