The Intersectionality of Migration, Racism and Climate Crisis
This session will address how the climate crisis (devastating droughts, flooding, destruction of vegetation, extreme heat, fires, etc.) leads to forced migration impacting human mobility, both directly and indirectly. How does the climate crisis and environmental racism unjustly impact people of color in our neighborhoods, across the nation and worldwide? “We have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” (49) Pope Francis Laudato Si’. We see racism and migration continue to intersect today when immigrants of color are more likely to be incarcerated, victimized and deported. People have the right to migrate, and countries have the right to regulate their borders. However, countries with greater means must accept greater responsibility. Regulation of borders must be done with justice and mercy, focused on the common good, and with compassion for the suffering as stated by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.
