Amy Tai, Mothers Out Front Newton (MA), slides from the Plenary on Climate and Racism

We here at Mothers Out Front are committed to understanding the importance of eliminating racism and other divisions in order to build the united, massive people powered movement that we need to reverse the effects of human caused climate change. We see the disproportionate effects of climate change on both a global and national level on communities of color and poor working class people. We are committed to standing up with front line communities to fight for environmental and economic justice, and know that a just sustainable world is not possible if we do not fight simultaneously for both.

Who’s benefiting? Power Mapping for Strategies that Win -- Derek Seidman and Munira Lokhandwala

This workshop covered the basics of power mapping and how it can help inform the plans we develop to achieve the change we want to see. Participants learned about what power mapping is - i.e, how to research and visualize the networks of people and institutions that currently have the power to decide whether or not we keep using fossil fuels or transition to renewable energy -- and how to get started power mapping on their own. This session features concrete Mothers Out Front campaign examples so we can learn how to apply this to our work everywhere. Participants learned about some tools to help do power research, such as the LittleSis online database and Oligrapher (a visual power mapping tool) and left this session with a clear understanding of what power mapping is, how to start doing it, and how it can help win. The session was led by LittleSis, a corporate watchdog research and power mapping group based in Buffalo, New York.
