This World Refugee Day, we acknowledge the struggle of forcibly displaced people who are on the frontlines of communities that have been impacted by climate change. We’ve put together an explainer on how we talk about climate migration and some helpful resources to get involved and stay sharp on the options and collective solutions we can take. We’ll also delve into framing migration as part of the solution and a form of adaptation to climate change.
This year, Pride Month arrives on the heels of a slew of climate victories, signaling important, people-powered wins. That they precede Pride Month is both a happy coincidence and, perhaps, the universe’s nod to the incredible strength and resistance of both the LGBTQ+ rights movement and the climate movement.
