Black Liberation & Ecology 1/22

Join Movement Generation for Part Two of their Race, Class, and Ecology Series:

Heal the Planet, Heal the People: Black Liberation and Ecology

As ecological justice organizers we’re clear that the chaos of Climate Change – from Hurricane Katrina to Super-storm Sandy to severe drought in East Africa – has hit Black and Brown communities first and worst. Therefore, we believe that the global liberation of black people is essential to the preservation of life on earth in the face of Climate chaos.

Join us on Thursday, January 22 at Ile Omode school to discuss Black Liberation and Ecology during “Heal the People, Heal the Planet”, Movement Generation's next event in the Race, Class, and Ecology series where we will explore the dynamics of capitalism, climate change, eco-justice, and Black liberation.
