Women of Color Speak Out: Climate Change and Systems of Oppression
Women of Color Speak Out on “Climate Change and Systems of Oppression”. We connect capitalism, colonialism, racism and the prison industrial complex to climate change. We will discuss subjects of war, corporations, banks, slavery, private prisons, poverty, and white supremacy.
Women of Color Speak Out are four Seattle local climate justice activists: Sarra Tekola, Afrin Sopariwala, Yin Yu, and Zarna Joshi. They were at the forefront of the Shell No protests and have presented at community center, women prison, universities and high schools. Members are associated with various environmental justice grassroots collectives such as Got Green and Rising Tide Seattle.
