As the problems grow in size, the response also needs to grow to confront them. One of the most urgent situations we face is the climate crisis. Recently at an organizing meeting in Chicago, Tim DeChristopher, an environmental justice activist, said that one of the reasons progress has not been made in solving the climate crisis is that it was relegated to the realm of being an environmental issue. In reality, the climate crisis affects every area of our lives from food and water security to health to jobs and housing. In fact, it threatens our very survival. At the meeting, activists from around the country who work on a broad range of issues joined together to start organizing a Global Climate Convergence.
