The Federal Election is just around the corner on May 21st and this is a critical time for us to take action for climate justice! For young people of colour who care about climate justice right around the continent, this is an opportunity to fight for the justice-centric solutions we need to see for our futures, our communities, and our family across the world.
We know that our immigrant and religious parents, relatives and extended communities can be hard to talk to about climate change and the issues facing the world we live in - so the POC Climate Network & ARRCC (Australian Religious Response to Climate Change) are hosting a 'How to talk to your immigrant and/or religious parents about climate change' session! It'll be partly debriefing and venting and hearing from POC who have done it successfully, and also brainstorming ways that we can make progress with the people closest to us.
This will run alongside the Youth Decide 'deep canvassing' your friends and family stream happening that Tuesday 19 April - you can read more on what deep canvassing and persuasive conversations look like during elections here!
This is an event for folks who identify as people of colour, and you're welcome to bring friends along - just get them to RSVP so they can get the Zoom link! ✨
