Activists rally for climate justice for ‘Greater Chaco’

Dozens of people rallied at Civic Plaza, calling for climate justice.

Climate activists from the four corners region are demanding fossil fuel extraction to stop in Greater Chaco.

They say climate change is uniquely impacting communities in the Southwest. 

“it’s definitely not new to the narrative of indigenous people from this region so we’re all connected by the fact that industry is overcoming people’s health and the sacredness of these lands,” says Olivia Juarez.

 Activists are asking people to contact Congressmen and Senators, demanding legislation to protect Greater Chaco.
