Global warming is an ethical issue. Poor people and people of color are disproportionately affected by climate change, and the changes with global warming are provoking violence and wars already.
The Riverdale-Yonkers Society has been active in working for climate justice. Some of our members are involved in Bronx Climate Justice North, and many of our members were part of the September, 2014, Climate Justice March in New York City.
We need to work for large scale change and we also need to make changes in our personal lives. Some of our Sunday platform talks are meant to inform about climate justice and inspire action. Watch our calendar for these, and for discussion groups also meant to inspire changes in our own lives and action to change the wider society.
