“The climate crisis is intertwined with all other socioeconomic injustices, such as racism, sexism, ableism and especially class inequality. To fight for climate justice is to fight for a world where no one is left behind.” —Mitzi Jonelle Tan (@mitzijonelle) As an activist from the Philippines, Mitzi knows firsthand what it’s like to be at the mercy of climate change. “I grew up seeing the impacts of the climate crisis, sitting in the dark huddled with my family with no electricity because of the raging typhoon outside.” Now she is committed to educating others about “MAPA” (Most Affected People and Areas), a term that encompasses those most disproportionately affected by climate change. “My hope lies in the people. I know that empires have toppled down before, and so marginalized people will be victorious. Together with hundreds of thousands across the globe, I fight for a world where no one is left behind — one where people care for one another as a community, one where everyone contributes to society in the ways they can and are provided with what they need, not just to live, but to thrive.” To hear more from Mitzi and to learn what you can do to support MAPA, head to our story now. 💙💚 Photo by @_anjdc
