This video is my perspective on climate injustice and how it affects the people in our local Tacoma community, particularly communities of color. Through this video I explore the ways natural disasters and climate change are affecting low-income minorities first, leaving lasting damage to an already unstable infrastructure. I illustrate how the lack of focused assistance and poor resource distribution has on Black families as our environment further deteriorates. In the creation of this video, I have utilized the power of storytelling to bring attention to how Black representation is needed in positions of power in order to help improve the health and welfare of our communities that need the help.
