Storytelling has the power to change hearts and minds in a way that facts and figures never can. The climate crisis is, at its core, a justice issue that is impacting each of our communities now. In order to truly grow and sustain the movement we need to create lasting and transformative change, we must understand the deep and intimate ways that this disaster impacts and threatens each of our lives. On September 14th 2019, Our Climate Voices & Loam are coming together for an international day of climate storytelling where we will workshop, cultivate, and share our personal climate stories and learn how to activate them for meaningful climate action. The strongest grassroots movements succeed when we understand how our stories intersect with our struggles for freedom and liberation, when we know intimately who and what we're fighting for.
