Statement Regarding Hurricane Florence From NC Climate Justice Collective

Two years ago, Hurricane Matthew caused massive damages and flooding in the eastern part of our state, displacing many families–our first self-described climate refugees–and further polluting the communities where toxic coal ash and hog waste overflowed their meager enclosures.
One year ago, Hurricanes Harvey and Maria devastated communities elsewhere, but we felt their pain and understood the injustice at the root of these vicious storms.
These are not natural disasters, they are the logical outcome of a society that believes some people and some places are expendable. They are the product of a broken political and economic system–an industrial growth society that has given rise to climate chaos and unspeakable suffering.
Now as we face yet another unprecedented storm–Hurricane Florence–and work feverishly to make sure that those who are always first and worst impacted are not forsaken, we make clear our one demand: there must be an immediate Just Transition to a clean energy economy that can turn the tides of destruction and source thriving, equitable, earth-honoring, joyfully inclusive communities.  Until we achieve that, the next unnatural storm will always be bearing down on us.
We ask that you support a Just Recovery from Hurricane Florence by sending donations to the frontline organizations working in NC at the intersection of economic, racial and ecological justice.  For more information, go to
