Join the Movement for Black Lives for the launch of its campaign for a Red, Black, & Green New Deal—a Black climate campaign to set a national Black Climate Agenda for a sustainable future in defense of Black lives.
The M4B explains, “Climate change multiplies the social, economic and environmental threats to our very livelihood and that of our future ancestors, here in the U.S. and around the globe. Extreme weather events are more frequent and volatile—2020 was the hottest year and had the most hurricanes on record. And our communities across the South are still recovering from February’s unusual and brutal winter storm compounded by the total failure of infrastructure and emergency response.
“The Red, Black & Green New Deal puts Black liberation at the center of the climate fight and addresses the impact of climate change and environmental racism on Black communities through six key pillars—land, labor, water, energy, economics, and democracy.
