rab­ble edi­tor Nick See­bruch sits down with Alex Stratas from Cli­mate Jus­tice uOt­tawa to talk about the work they do fight­ing for cli­mate jus­tice on and off campus.

Cli­mate Jus­tice uOt­tawa is a stu­dent run, grass­root orga­ni­za­tion aimed towards achiev­ing cli­mate jus­tice with­in the uOt­tawa com­mu­ni­ty and beyond. Their mis­sion includes encour­ag­ing uni­ver­si­ties to ful­ly divest from orga­ni­za­tions which fund fos­sil fuel projects.

Alex Stratas (she/​her) is a third-year polit­i­cal sci­ence and com­mu­ni­ca­tions stu­dent at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ottawa with expe­ri­ence in advo­cat­ing and orga­niz­ing grass­roots cam­paigns on the cli­mate cri­sis through her work as co-pres­i­dent of Cli­mate Jus­tice Cli­ma­tique uOt­tawa (CJCUO). She is pas­sion­ate about com­mu­ni­ty advo­ca­cy, world lit­er­a­ture, and inter­na­tion­al pol­i­tics — most­ly regard­ing the SWANA region and the inter­sec­tion of iden­ti­ties. She is often found read­ing, lis­ten­ing to music, or com­plain­ing about the pub­lic tran­sit sys­tem in Ottawa.
