“It wasn’t until Hurricane Sandy hit New York City in 2012 that I truly understood how climate disasters can expose society’s systemic failures. As infrastructure in New York City collapsed, people who could afford a car escaped, and those with house insurance could make claims on damages. The rest of New York City was left with inaccessible public transit, damaged belongings, and homes that were no longer liveable. The majority of those with cars and house insurance were white. At that point, it became clear it was folks of color who were hurting the most in these disasters. Things began to truly connect. I realized: climate change doesn’t sit apart from inequality. Climate change is the outcome of inequality. To address the climate crisis, we must address inequality. We must have climate justice. Now let’s walk together.”
