***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR NOV 13, 12 pm EDT*** 

GRASSROOTS NETWORK TO LAUNCH POLICY PLATFORM OUTLINING A GREEN NEW DEAL FOR THE GULF SOUTH

 

WHAT: Join us for a national launch of the Gulf South for a Green New Deal (GS4GND) Policy Platform. 

 

The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy has anchored the six month collective grassroots development of a regional vision for a Green New Deal. Community leaders, indigenous tribal members, farmers, fisherfolks, small business owners, and residents from the 5 Gulf South states (TX, LA, MS, AL, FL) cultivated the Gulf South for a Green New Deal Policy Platform in order to assert the role of the Gulf South in national conversations and secure a more resilient and sustainable future for residents of the region. In May 2019 more than 50 groups co-sponsored the launch of GS4GND. Today, more than 100 organizations have endorsed the Gulf South for a Green New Deal Policy Platform. 

 

WHO:  The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy along with various community members, leaders, and organizers working on issues including climate, housing, criminal justice and more across the 5 Gulf  South states (TX, LA, MS, AL, FL). Their ongoing work comprises elements of the Gulf South for a Green New Deal Policy Platform. 

  

Brief presentation on Gulf South for a Green New Deal policy platform to be followed by Q&A.

 

WHEN: November 13, 2019 at 11am CDT/ 12pm EDT

 

WHY: The South is often excluded from national policy processes and conversations on how to address the global climate crisis. Gulf South for a Green New Deal is a collective policy platform developed by community members to uplift the strategic value of the Gulf South in a national Green New Deal conversation. This platform will amplify frontline Gulf South voices who have invaluable insight into what a Green New Deal must include in order to be successful in this unique region and nationally. 

 

HOW: Please RSVP with Shravya Jain-Conti, sjain@climatenexus.org
