As the capstone for the conference, this session explores how law and policy can be creatively, imaginatively, and practically used to advance CRCQL’s goals and the EJ movement more broadly. The session will address how EJ and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) organizations draw on critical approaches to community engagement (such as consent-based and kin-centric organizing and creating community-based, solidarity economies) and how they have built– and are further developing – diverse, intersectional coalitions committed to engaging in and moving toward just transitions to more equitable, solidarity-grounded, and sustainable futures.
