Red, Black, and Green New Deal
This panel will identify and strengthen connections between the struggles for Black liberation and for global climate justice. How can we leverage this political moment of international uprisings in defence of Black life to unify calls for reparations for colonization, enslavement & exploitation, ecological & climate debts?
The session will lift up the Movement for Black Lives’ “Red, Black, and Green New Deal” as a revolutionary platform, one that centres Black communities & Black visions for climate justice. Panelists will use the visionary framework offered in the platform to think through what a ‘Global Green New Deal’ could look like that answers the need for climate reparations and what forms of transnational Black solidarity are needed to build towards it.
