The People’s Climate March was designed to tell a story–and that story begins with the people at the very front. These are the people directly impacted by the effects of climate injustice: hurricane-impacted communities and neighborhoods choking on incinerator toxins, but also immigrants, farmworkers, domestic workers, the homeless and evicted. These people represent the “frontlines of crisis, forefront of change” in more than symbolism. Their leadership showed itself in every aspect of that weekend–indigenous young people sharing their voice and their artistry at Saturday’s Youth Convergence; directly impacted communities’ physical leadership of the march on Sunday; a spontaneous speak-out from Grassroots Global Justice Alliance spokespeople at Monday’s Flood Wall Street civil disobedience; and powerful testimony at the People’s Tribunal across from the UN talks on Tuesday. We created this slideshow to name and honor just a few of these leaders on the frontlines.
If it takes roots to weather the storm, these are the people who tend those roots and keep them strong.
