Climate Reality Project. Spotlight On: Indigenous Leadership



From the Lumbee Nation elders instrumental in stopping the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to the Standing Rock Sioux protestors risking everything to block the Dakota Access Pipeline, Indigenous activists are leading the fight against fossil fuels and for a truly just transition to clean energy across the US.

Join our next Spotlight On webinar on August 11 from 2-3 PM ET to hear how four Indigenous activists who’ve been on the front lines of this fight stood up to fossil fuel giants and won.

 

 

 

Our speakers include:

  • Donna Chavis, a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and an activist with over 40 years of service.
  • Jorden Revels, a member of the Lumbee Tribe who has been an active environmental justice advocate for his community since he first heard about the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
  • Beth Roach, a chair of the environmental issues committee of the Nottoway Indian Tribal Council in Virginia.
  • Bii Gallardo, a core team member for the International Indigenous Youth Council Los Angeles Chapter.

Space is limited, so please RSVP today!
