Post-Disaster Climate Migration Messaging Guide
National Partnership for New Americans, International Refugee Assistance Project, Refugees International, and Communities United for Status and Protection
Advocates can frame migration as a key solution to the new era of climate-driven extreme weather and displacement, build solidarity with displaced peoples, and build a more intersectional and powerful movement for climate action. Call for protections for people displaced by climate impacts alongside demands for decarbonization. Start with values like family, care, compassion, solidarity and treating other people how we would want to be treated. Provide aspirational calls to provide something good. Offer clear solutions and alternatives. Pivot the narrative to the real villains. Point the finger of blame and name the motivation that underpins anti-immigrant policies and narratives. Center the leadership and experiences of those directly-impacted by the climate crisis and anti-immigrant policies.
