Mission Statement

The Climate Justice League is dedicated to working in solidarity with local, national, and international movements to avert climate catastrophe and transition towards a sustainable world. Those that have done the least to cause climate change are the ones paying for it the most - that’s climate injustice. There cannot be a livable climate without justice and there cannot be justice without a livable climate. We work alongside the Five Colleges to pressure their administrations to divest from the fossil fuel industry, as ours was one of the first to commit to doing so. We work to block future dirty energy proposals, close those in operation, and lessen the power of the fossil fuel industry. We organize and celebrate with the national Climate Movement - frequently attending rallies, convergences, and protests around the country. We strive to further educate ourselves and our community on the greatest challenge of our time, while empowering each other to commit to action. We strive to foster love, care, and respect for our earth and communities and to ensure Hampshire, and the world, a more just and sustainable future.

Climate Legacy

Working with Students for a Just and Stable Future, attending the winter retreat (Jan 31- Feb 2) to plan the April Action focused on pushing Governor Patrick to enact three main goals before he leaves office:

1. Ban the Worst
Keep coal, tar sands oil, and natural gas fracking out of Massachusetts
2. Build Only the Best
All new energy infrastructure should be green and renewable and LEED certified
3. Begin to Price the Rest
Hold polluters accountable and enforce a carbon tax
