Environmental Racism Research Project Launched

The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, Canada (CBTU) has joined the Adapting Canadian Work and Workplaces (ACW) research project as a partner organization by launching an action research initiative on environmental racism and work in a time of climate change.

To start the project, CBTU is launching a social media campaign to engage racialized and indigenous communities in the process of discovering what has been written so far about environmental racism in the fight against climate change. Writing on work, climate change and environmental racism will be welcome.

You can help to enrich the dialogue on environmental racism by clicking on our initial bibliography and then adding sources by tweeting suggestions using the hashtag #EnvRacismCBTUACW

We will incorporate suggestions into a final bibliography which will be used to design a participatory training workshop to engage the community in the struggle to slow climate change and identify pathways to green jobs.
