Wildfires and Migrant Communities
The Center for Cultural Power
April 16, 2020
California is now in year-round fire season. If the record-breaking destruction and intensity of California’s recent wildfires has taught us anything, it’s that fire preparedness and response must include migrant and communities of color. Climate Woke's Layel Camargo and Reyna Amaya of The North Pole went to Santa Rosa to talk to folks affected by the 2017 North Bay Fires about their experiences on the frontlines of wildfires and how they are coping, organizing, preparing AND rebuilding. All across California we have to unite, prepare and protect each other in the face of future natural disasters. #ClimateWoke.
