In Yes! Magazine, Breanna Draxler (@BreannaDraxler) writes about climate activists who approach their work through a lens of justice. Built on a holistic understanding of environment, the environmental justice movement is dedicated to dismantling the systems of oppression that cause harm to everyone and everything in an environment. Instead of separating out problems of housing and violence against women, for example, from problems of clean air and water, those in this movement argue that all these challenges must be addressed together, because they are interrelated.
