In the words of comrades at The Slow Factory: “Dear climate activists, divert from the “uncontroversial” influencer roles you have found and dare to lead fearlessly. We will not be silenced and we will not be erased. Climate justice is a human rights issue.”
I was happy to debut these beauties this past weekend at the A Day of Action Black History Month event at the National Portrait Gallery in February 2024! My new mini zines were well received! For context the design was inspired by my original climate justice is disability justice poster and tee design in 2022 in collaboration with @everpress as well as my further design research and writings for my A Black Neurodivergent Artist's Manifesto to Collective Liberation developed during my Slow Factory fellowship in 2023. The zine also pays special tribute to my fellow disabled Latina and climate justice activist and comrade Daphne Frias who has dedicated her time, energy, and body to making sure disabled folks are represented in the climate justice conversation. Designed in the zine are Climate Justice facts to uplift disabled folks in mind.
Zine cover on yellow, teal and light blue colored paper that state The words Climate Justice is Disability Justice written in bold black text placed inside of a rounded arched rectangle with 3 black stars are placed outside of the text and a three lined waving circle peeps out from underneath the text.
Text in the zine reads Climate action must address the underlying social structures that have created environmental inequity. This is why disability justice is climate justice. Climate justice is disability justice. ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’: Disability Justice is Climate Justice
Nearly 1 billion people, or 15 percent of the world’s population, are disabled
Climate change impacts disproportionately affect Disabled people who often lack the resources to adapt to climate change.
Climate change affects disabled folks in dynamic ways.
Disability Justice acknowledges that all bodies are valuable, hold beauty, and are deserving of care. This extends to our community bodies, to the bodies of our plant and animal kin, and to our shared planetary body itself, the earth.

"DISABLED PEOPLE LIVE AT THE INTERSECTION OF ALL SYSTEMS OF OPPRESSION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES. THERE IS NOT ONE ISSUE WHERE YOU WILL NOT FIND DISABLED INDIVIDUALS EXPERIENCING THE EFFECTS OF SOCIAL INJUSTICE OR ADVOCATING FOR CHANGE." Quote by DAPHNE FRIAS
