What's Land Got to Do with It? The Role Land Plays in Our Social Movements: Past, Present, and Future

This session seeks to make space and learn from frontline leaders working at the intersection of climate justice, sovereignty and land justice. The conversation will acknowledge the history and current work of the Land Justice Movement while exploring the relationships on the ground that are paving the way for future generations to advocate for transformative change as we face systemic racism and the dire realities of climate change.

The Civil Rights Movement and other struggles for racial justice never ended. Today, climate change is exacerbating the existing and growing inequities and injustices that people have always been fighting against in the name of freedom.

We will hear from leaders that are centering land amidst a myriad of challenges black and brown communities are facing – housing and food insecurity, joblessness, disaster capitalism – all at once, every single day. We do not always have the opportunity to talk about land as the connection between these issues; both as a mechanism to enslave and oppress people but also used to build and support civilizations and thriving communities.

Leaders from intersecting social movements will share how they build daily infrastructure that allows folks to invest in their own communities while supporting sustainable power building efforts. This work looks very different depending upon the entry point and we hope to attract folks from a diverse spectrum of interests to engage and connect to address climate justice, sovereignty and land justice.
