Resources

When you have a chance, check out some of these great articles and videos on topics ranging from environmental justice to Indigenous solidarity to anti oppression. These resources can help give you a strong analysis of environmental issues, and an understanding of the root causes of environmental degradation. It is these root systems – such as colonialism, capitalism, and heteropatriarchy – that oppress people and the environment, and which we must address and create solutions to in order to achieve environmental justice.
