Join the Hip Hop Caucus for its fifth annual Environmental Justice Summit.  Leading environmental organizers from communities of color in the Bay Area and beyond will come together to share experiences and discuss steps to diversify the Green Movement, as well as specific needs of our most vulnerable communities.

The Hip Hop Caucus says, “Environmentalism is a movement that impacts all classes, colors, and demographics of society, and yet there is a lack of diversity in the environmental movement.  People of color are strong supporters of environmental issues, more so than is commonly perceived.  After all, communities of color have a much higher risk of air pollution and, historically, have been targeted as dumping sites for toxic pollution.

This lack of diversity is hurting the movement and stalling progress that’s been made to address the issue of climate change.  If we want to continue making advancements in the climate change movement, we need to be more inclusive….

This event will include a revolutionary keynote address, a panel discussion of environmental leaders, and live performances by musical artists. Register for free on Eventbrite!”
