The Climate Justice Alliance’s Summer of Our Power launched on the Summer Solstice—June 21, 2015—in recognition of our interrelated, interdependent, and complementary relationship with Mother Earth.
In the face of climate crisis, communities on the frontlines of the impacts are also at the forefront of the struggle to create solutions that are healthy and equitable for both people and the planet—what we call a just transition.
Over the course of two months during the summer of 2015, frontline communities will undertake creative movement building projects to build interconnected local strategies and broader public awareness for a just transition away from an economy based on extraction and exploitation.
The Summer of Our Power includes CJA’s new Just Transition Fellowship program; a story-telling project designed to share narratives and uplift our solutions; and as the centerpiece a “quilt relay” in August, through which CJA will create a collective quilt that symbolizes the breadth and depth of frontline community solutions offering real hope in the face of climate devastation. The quilt relay will conclude in solidarity with gulf coast communities at the 10th Anniversary Commemoration of Hurricane Katrina.
