Shifting Climates Shifting People

Marginalized by Colonialism, Forced Out by Climate Change

As climate change reshapes the Earth’s habitability, millions are forced to migrate … while millions more are constrained from escaping environmental hardship. Shifting Climates, Shifting People grapples with the disparate impacts of climate change on nations impoverished by colonialism:

  • What happens when people have no choice but to leave their homes due to environmental devastation? What happens when they cannot leave or are prevented from leaving?
  • Whose stories are shared and whose imaginations are empoweredand whose are erased from public knowledgeas communities are endangered or uprooted?
  • How has White colonialism undermined the indigenous protectors of ecosystems? How is White capitalism usurping green industries?

Shifting Climates, Shifting People centers the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and non-white communities for perspective on environmental destruction and the wellbeing of humanity.

Contributing writers are scholars and pastors, preachers and organizers; they come to this work from Fiji and from the Osage Nation, from Ghana and from Canada, from the United States and from Indonesia, and many places in between.
