Flagship Stop in New Orleans

The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy is excited to be hosting the New Orleans stop of the Sunrise Movement's national Road to the Green New Deal Tour, in partnership with a growing list of local organizations. The tour spans the entire U.S., with 8 massive tour stops and over 100 town hall meetings, where communities have been gathering together to share stories of climate disaster and resistance, to build movement, and to vision what a Green New Deal should deliver for their regions.

GCCLP invites you to join us on Tuesday, May 7th, from 6pm-9pm at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for an evening of ritual, of local art and performance, and of authentic dialogue about the particular crisis we face here in the Gulf South and what must be done to confront it in a manner that advances ecological equity and climate justice in the region. CLICK HERE to Register!


Our goals for the New Orleans tour stop are to 1) Honor local Indigenous and Black leadership around caring for each other and the earth; 2) Create a safe, inclusive space to connect the dots around climate, climate disaster, jobs, and next generation leadership; and 3) Launch Gulf South for a Green New Deal as a multi-state effort to implement the vision of the Green New Deal, rooted in the unique realities of the Gulf South. Read more about Gulf South for a Green New Deal HERE.
