Our world is defined by the stories we tell. For too long, those in power have told a fanciful story: that even though the U.S. is the richest country in the world, we can’t afford to acknowledge, much less address, the intersecting crises of climate change, systemic racism, and extreme inequality.
Historically, major environmental groups have also largely failed to connect these crises, while centering a white dominant viewpoint that erased those who didn’t look like a “typical” environmentalist.
It’s time to write a new story.
That’s why we created Lit, a climate justice storytelling project that connects the dots between climate change, systemic racism, and extreme inequality — while highlighting the women, men, youth, LGBTQ+, Black, Brown, and Indigenous people around the world who are tackling them.
We hope these stories inspire you to write your own — and join us in the collective struggle to create a more just and equitable world.
Our new storytelling series, Lit: Stories from the Frontlines of Climate Justice, seeks to elevate the stories of people pushing for a just future and livable climate — and inspire others to do the same.
