This session will help link big conversations about a Green New Deal, a Just Transition, and Climate Justice, with community work. How does your work relate to big change needed to address climate change? How can community-based organizations and the climate movement work together? How to support and implement practical solutions in the here-and-now while also working for large-scale policy change?
