This will be a launch page for various specific pages about helping middle-class and or white people in the environment movement understand a bit better what is actually going on.
If you have suggestions for additions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to tell me that this is all tosh, that the “movement” is already super-inclusive … just don’t, okay? Save your time and electrons.
It is TOTALLY the responsibility of white and middle-class people to educate themselves about this stuff. However, if there are POC/working class people who want to do interviews to appear on Manchester Climate Monthly about race and/or class issues in the UK environment/climate movement, they’d be very very welcome.
