Climate change continues to have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable communities around the globe, including migrants and communities of color—people who are typically marginalized in our society. Justseeds, in collaboration with CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now part of the Center for Cultural Power), forged partnerships between artists and frontline environmental justice organizations to create this portfolio, which sought to highlight the effects of climate change on these communities.

The portfolio drew inspiration from the powerful work of grassroots groups that have championed creative and community-based solutions to combat climate change; and that have resisted industrial fossil fuel projects, fracking operations, destructive mining practices, and the transportation of toxins. The art amplified voices from the frontline communities most impacted by global warming and destructive environmental practices.
