In acknowledgment of Earth Day 2021, we are proud to call ourselves part of a global network dedicated to bold environmental change. At CWL, we believe awareness empowers action. As a result, one of the most meaningful ways we’re celebrating our home this year is by catching up on the important conversations being introduced worldwide about climate justice. In this spirit of Earth Day, we hope to help unpack the road toward climate justice by offering the below collection of dialogues and resources.

For those looking to understand the climate crisis we currently face, how it intersects with other global issues and, more importantly, what you can do to help fight it:
