Growing the Intersectional Environmental Movement

April 27, 2021 @ 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm

The national environmental movement has faced growing pressure to recognize that meaningful, enduring progress is more likely achieved through “big tent” organizing that reaches across social, economic, and racial justice movements. Morally and philosophically, environmentalists increasingly see their cause as intertwined with longstanding fights for economic justice and civil rights. Under a Biden administration, there is more opportunity than ever to grow an intersectional environmental movement, one that joins with those working for economic justice, civil rights, labor protections, and other cross-cutting causes. Is that happening? What are its contours and prospects?
