Climate Justice Radio

Apr 1 2021 • 54 mins

What is Climate Justice Toronto anyways? How do we organize? And how can you get involved? These are some of the questions that host Alex and guest Niklas Agarwal answer in this first episode of Climate Justice Radio.  Niklas, who has been organizing with CJTO since it’s early days, discusses some of the key values guiding our work, and explains some of the questions you may have had about CJTO like why do limit our organizing to young people? And what’s the justice in climate justice really all about? You also get to learn a bit more about Niklas himself as he introduces the episode with a land story and closes out by telling Alex about how he started at CJTO.
The episode also includes the first of many Temp Checks, this week Chloe Lederman and Savi Gellatly-Ladd take you through some current events update. They discuss Biden’s decision to revoke the permits for Keystone XL, the resistance against Enbridge’s line 3 pipeline, farmers protests in India, Ford’s temporary eviction ban and the struggle for more permanent solutions to the housing crisis, the fight to defund the police in Toronto by 50% and the campaign for paid sick leave. Follow the links in the resource section to take action and find out more.

Finally, you don’t want to cut this episode short, the last section is an opportunity to learn a movement song with Savi and Chloe. Listen and feel free to sing along to People Gonna Rise Like The Water.
