The Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition (FCAC) formed in November 2015 from a diverse group of community members who recognized the need for our town to come together to confront these challenges. Heeding moral, spiritual, and scientific calls for transformation, the FCAC seeks to amplify work being done in our community for climate action and build momentum for a just transition to a new way of living with each other and with our environment.
Representing diverse constituencies and taking action on multiple issues, FCAC seeks to create space for the many types of change we will need in order to shift our communities away from an old paradigm of pollution, extraction, colonialism, and inequality. As we transition, we hope to center values of community, resilience, justice, and democracy, and call on indigenous knowledge and innovation to move forward. With these as guiding principles, we hope to chart a new path forward for Alaska and build a more sustainable economy and society.
