COP27 - UN Climate Change Conference Egypt - Climate Justice Alliance

We were on the ground in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt as part of a 60 member It Takes Roots Frontline delegation made up of Climate Justice Alliance, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Indigenous Environmental Network, Indigenous Climate Action, Just Transition Alliance and The Black Hive at Movement for Black Lives. We also worked collaboratively with other organizations such as La Via Campesina and the World March of Women.

We’ve had the privilege to witness frontline communities and members of our alliance demonstrate brilliance every day here in Egypt from members like Valencia Gunder with The Smile Trust, to Moneka de Oro with Micronesia Climate Change Alliance and others, who have gone the distance, bringing the same power they hold at home with their communities to this global platform.

Over the course of two weeks, we met with policy makers and US members of Congress, engaged in dozens of panels like Global Grassroots Feminist Frameworks for Climate Justice and Frontline Solutions to the Climate Crises, along with demonstrations including No More Stolen Relatives on Stolen Land, Action in solidarity with Egypt’s political prisoners and more!
