Black 2 Just Transition Assembly & Training in Detroit, Nov. 8-12
The East Michigan Environmental Action Council (EMEAC) and the Climate Justice Alliance have teamed up for the Black 2 Just Transition Assembly & Training, that is bringing together 60+ organizers from November 8-12, 2018 in Detroit.
For decades, Detroit has been home to some of the worst environmental injustices in the U.S., while also being a historic hub for visionary, black liberation struggles and organized resistance. Together, we will examine systemic change pathways away from destructive industries towards models that center the health, well-being and self-determination of communities.
Black 2 Just trainings will center the lessons, principles & practices of Black Liberation, Indigenous sovereignty, healing, environmental justice and other allied struggles for decolonization.
