We are a group of Kingston area citizens committed to taking action on climate change. We recognize climate disruption as a global crisis that is having a disproportionate effect on vulnerable communities around the world and we believe that local activism is one way we can seek to make positive change. We’re currently focusing on local government and participating in national and international campaigns.
This group originally formed in preparation for the Global Climate March on November 29, 2015, for which we successfully organized a rally of 400+ people in downtown Kingston. We continue to meet once per month to organize around local actions on climate change.
For those of us in Kingston, we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron–Wendat, and thank these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.
