Our new logo by Leila Pyle! Leila describes the logo saying “ the chickadee represents the people of Interior AK and their dedication and resilience. As one of the few birds that stays in Fairbanks through the winter, chickadees are adaptive, resilient and resourceful; they also often travel in groups. The sun rays represent brightness, hope, and our greatest source of renewable power. Fireweed, the final component of the design, is the first plant to grow after forest fires, and when it blooms fully, winter is soon approaching. This image represents both regeneration and FCAC’s creation during the climate crisis aiming to #KeepAlaskaCold.” You can find more of Leila’s art on Instagram and Facebook!
Mobilizing Fairbanks & Interior Alaska communities toward just action on climate change
Through education and advocacy Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition mobilizes Fairbanks & Interior Alaska communities toward action to mitigate and adapt to climate change. We seek to elevate climate solutions and foster a fair, equitable, & just transition to sustainable communities — locally, regionally and globally. We seek to build a renewed & respectful relationship between all beings and the earth.
We are motivated by the moral, spiritual, & scientific duty to take action & elevate voices of responsibility to each other, the earth, and all living beings. We have adopted the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing.
We recognize that we work throughout the unceded territories of the Indigenous Peoples of Alaska; that our office is located on the traditional territories of the lower Tanana Dene Athabascan Peoples. We acknowledge the ancestral & present land stewardship and place-based knowledge of the peoples of these territories.
We know that Alaska is on the frontlines of climate change impacts as the Arctic warms twice as fast as worldwide average. We can see the effects with permafrost thaw, floods, wildfires, freezing rain, and more. We also know that we need to be on the frontlines of solutions with a just transition away from fossil fuels towards sustainable energy and economic solutions.
