RBGND Ally Meeting: Every Fourth Thursday
Description of the ally gathering from the Red, Black, and Green New Deal organization:

“These calls are specifically for non-Black allies of the RBGND; if you identify as Black or African American or are representing a Black led organization, please be in contact with RBGND National Organizing Lead, Valencia Gunder (valencia@m4bl.org).

The Red Black & Green New Deal (RBGND) is a multi-faceted, multi-year project of the Movement for Black Lives anchored at the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy, which will develop and advance a national climate agenda for Black Lives. The RBGND will 1) educate, organize and catalyze Black Communities into the global movement for Climate Justice; 2) introduce and advance federal legislation to address the climate crisis and past environmental harms through federal investment in Black communities; and 3) build out a national network of Black climate advocates to join a global movement for climate action.

Questions from non-Black allies please reach out to emma@gcclp.org,
Questions from Black-identified leaders, please reach out to Valencia@m4bl.org or use this Black Leader form to join the RBGND Working Group: tinyurl.com/RBGNDJoin.”
