Since its conception in 2022, the Climate Justice Community School (CJCS) has developed political public education events to redefine justice and intersectionality in the climate movement, and has fostered a culture of learning rooted in the struggles of the poor and dispossessed. 

The CJCS seeks to build community, raise political consciousness, and connect popular movements fighting for justice and liberation in NYC and beyond.

Event Spotlight: 
Summer School

A foundational course curated by BIPOC organizers consisting of lectures, workshops, and an adjoining resource hub providing readings, calls to action, and other resources to help community members get involved locally.


This six-week-long series is taught primarily by QBIPOC organizers and scholar-activists who have organized at the grassroots level. Ticket sale revenue that is not used to pay for operations and speakership fees is given to mutual aid causes.

This Is What Environmental Justice Leadership Looks Like


Grassroots organizers, environmental justice elders, Political Prisoners, activist-scholars, and Indigenous folx teaching the community. 


Individuals deepening their political and environmental knowledge and skills, and learning to build community infrastructure to protect from climate disasters. 


Fundraised to compensate these leaders, and for Mutual Aid Organisations and Youth working on community-based projects in NYC and around the world. 

The Climate Justice Community School has become a space for the general public to discover and grapple with environmental and social justice concepts and training in an accessible environment, in addition to creating a regenerative space that seeks to build sustainable community infrastructure and develop mindsets to combat the climate crisis.
