• We promote climate justice when we take guidance from our many local communities and how they have been impacted by the use of fossil fuels and climate change.
• We are stronger when we collaborate with others engaged in actions consistent with our vision.
• Mass mobilizations not just during election periods opens the eyes of government and corporate power-holders to the power we are building through prolonged organizing and campaigning.
We seek to achieve a sustainable future where people’s power promotes and maintains a healthy environment and builds a society that is just, prosperous, and socially and economically equitable in a changing climate.
Our Mission Statement
NAZCCA’s mission is to inform and engage people from all walks of life to join a broad and diverse climate movement. NAZCCA seeks to raise awareness of the threats of climate change and solutions, and to empower residents to organize and work to reduce human impact on climate. By informing, engaging, and training people to fight for the change we hope to achieve a future that is sustainable for people and the planet.

Dr. Riemer will explore and discuss the many issues of social justice and gender inequity in a changing climate. This will include examining the higher risks and greater burdens on women from the impacts of climate change and the ways in which unequal participation in decision-making processes and labor markets compound these effects and prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making, and implementation.
