Resources to educate yourself about sexism, human rights, and how to stand up against them.

Our beliefs may be noble, but our actions make us who we are. It is simply not enough to be 'not racist' or 'not sexist', to 'believe in equality' or 'believe in human rights', we must actively stand up against racism, sexism and stand up for human rights and against climate change.


POWER CONCEDES NOTHING WITHOUT A DEMAND.


Issues of race, gender and human rights intersect and overlap with the Climate Crisis at multiple junctions. It is clear that to tackle climate change, we must also confront these structural problems.


This is a list of resources addressing sexism, human rights, and climate intersectionality. This list is by no means extensive and will continue to be updated.
