How do we balance the urgency of racism with that of climate change?

The two issues intersect. Effects of global climate change are disproportionately affecting communities of color. Historically, authorities treated minority neighborhoods as less valuable; as a result, they are more vulnerable to flooding, storm damage, and increasing temperatures. The residents may also be less resilient due to economic disparity and health conditions. Actions against climate change require awareness of existing inequalities and consideration of those who are on the front line.
