It has become clear we face two distinct possible futures:  Economic Transition or Ecological Collapse. If we stay the current course of a globalized industrial model, collapse is inevitable.  Yet many current Transition efforts, tacitly accept or overtly promote the further marginalization of working class communities and communities of color.  The fact is:  Transition is inevitable, but Justice is not.  Current climate change policy efforts are one example: high-density urban “smart growth” is fueling gentrification in many cities. 

The dominant economy asserts that young black men are completely expendable, mountaintops & peoples in Appalachia are completely expendable, indigenous knowledge that cultivates our global food & medicine cabinet is completely expendable  We must build a Transition movement that directly confronts these realities.  We must create an intentional pathway – a Just Transition – towards local, living, loving, linked economies, rooted in racial, class & gender justice.
