The Red, Black, & Green New Deal is a bold, uncompromising stance on the current Climate Crisis...
Black folks have always been a part of this fight and the Movement for Black Lives launching an initiative to put forward a Black Climate Agenda that prioritizes Black Lives and guarantees a green future for Black families.
When I attended the Black to the Future Action Fund's Climate Justice is Racial Justice Event I was beside myself with delight. We are talking about phenomenal black women who are talking my talk!
Do yourself a favor, and watch this fact filled hour of unapologetic black power. #Thankmelater
The Climate Justice is Racial Justice Event was absolutely one of THEE highlights of my "Earth month."
What resonated with you Sister Maria, you ask?
Structural & Systemic Environmental Racism
Have you all downloaded the new report by Greenpeace USA, Movement for Black Lives, and Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy. This is the most comprehensive analysis to date of fossil fuel racism and how fossil fuel production is creating a public health crisis for Black, Brown, Indigenous, and poor communities.
But if you haven't, here's the gist...
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately, many of us, have already died.
Died due to environmental racism and climate inequity. The report speaks directly to how Black, Brown, Indigenous, and poor communities have not only been left behind, but are barely holding on to God's unchanging hand because of it.
We MUST act now Fam!
Let us leave our egos at the door. Pull out our laptops. Be present. Be intentional. Be Mindful.
And get this WORK!! Our future is RIPE with infinite, transformative, regenerative possibilities!
Build back better can't be just a slogan, an ideal, it has to be the equitable framework that guides all we do and hope to do... and that's ON Mary had a little Lamb (.)
With Earth Month behind us, we may be looking for other opportunities to participate in some #DopeAzzGreenLife Activities.
Join us on May 11, 2021! We will be soaking in all the goodness that is the RBGNewDealness
