Maypop Collective for Climate and Economic Justice

Maypop Collective is fighting for a just transition away from a fossil fuel economy based on exploitation, to community-centered, clean-energy economies that take care of people and ecosystems.

Maypop Collective believes the transition to new economies and energy-systems should be rooted in the fight for racial and economic justice, led by Indigenous Nations, working people, poor folks, and communities of color that are already disproportionately harmed by fossil fuel extraction, burning, and transport.
