What a pleasure to be on this panel on “Climate Justice” at COP25 in Madrid, Spain.

I discussed how racism, colonialism, empire, white privilege, sexuality, ableism, classism all intersect and influence climate change.

I am inspired by those on the panel to share how #intersectionality can be used to address and demand for #climatejustice during this pivotal moment in time. #COP25 #WCC

“The language that we use, how we talk about who God is, these are all important issues of how we tackle climate change… We always talk about the earth as ‘Mother Earth’. When the earth is feminine, that is why it is so easy to dominate the earth as we have dominated women for all of our human history.” Grace Ji-sun Kim, Earlham School of Religion
