In the past two years, we have seen the inequitable impact of the global pandemic, and inequitable impacts of irreversible climate change.
Communities of colour are often the least contributors to pollution and climate change and yet are the most impacted by its consequences. It can no longer be overlooked that climate change and racial injustice are linked and the systemic racism that influences its impacts cannot be ignored.
