This workgroup focuses on examining the ways that white privilege and subtle forms of racism are unintentionally embedded in the climate movement, and on challenging ourselves to be better allies to communities of color and low-income communities, especially those most directly affected by climate change and the fossil fuel economy. We meet at most monthly 350 Seattle general meetings, and also once a month outside of general meetings. Regular workgroup meeting day still TBD. We welcome new members!

Along with looking closely at our own privilege, fragility, and subtle forms of racism, it’s important to be out there supporting our allies working on a variety of justice issues. Find upcoming options here:
We can also each alert our workgroup list (to join it, email Lisa) by using “reply-all” when an important chance to support our allies arises. (To keep emails manageable, let’s use this sparingly.)
