With the goal of helping researchers find solutions to complex climate change problems and recognizing social justice and climate change are intertwined, the Digital Initiatives team, part of Portland State University Library, created the Climate Justice Collection. Our aim is to highlight the work of PSU researchers, foster cross-disciplinary collaboration, facilitate the co-creation of original research, and support climate advocacy.
