A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Where: Ethiopian Community Center, 8323 Rainier Ave S
Women of Color Speak Out is a collective of activists in Seattle, who are working to educate and inform communities on the climate crisis. Their presentation ties the systems of oppression to climate change. The range of their experience and backgrounds makes them an interestingly varied group — they speak from their personal truths and share unique perspectives on demanding climate justice and collectively creating a new, just future for us all.
This upcoming discussion highlights how systems of oppression have led to worldwide ecological disaster. It will explore capitalism, colonialism, racism and the prison industrial complex and how they lead into climate change, which impacts mostly people of color, poor people, and especially poor women of color. Touching on subjects such as war, corporations, banks, slavery, private prisons, and white supremacy, the discussion will go deep into the causes of climate change and how we can combat them.
Women of Color Speak Out works in collaboration and connection with Cascadia Climate Collaborative, a program of the Whidbey Institute. Cascadia Climate Collaborative’s mission is to strengthen, deepen, and broaden the bioregional climate movement.
