About the #FuelChange Anthem
Green For All teamed up with Big Picture Anthems to deliver a song and music video to inspire and mobilize a movement of people for zero-emission cars, trucks, and buses in neighborhoods across America.
The #FuelChange Anthem song and video features Black artists who help tell the story of transportation pollution from the perspective of directly impacted communities. Artists were selected from a national #FuelChangeChallenge for poets, rappers, and singer/songwriters who submitted a verse for a chance to be featured in the project. From more than 50 submissions, four artists were selected: Nehemiah Vaughn of Oakland, CA; Warren Dickson of 3rd Rock Hip-Hop in Los Angeles, CA; and Cyarra Brown and Nashon Da Bomb of New Bedford, MA.
We’re using music, arts, and education to reach impacted communities who’ve traditionally been left out of the climate conversation and develop local leaders to take action in their own neighborhoods. After a nationwide talent search, we're releasing a new music video featuring diverse rappers and singers from directly impacted communities across the country who are using their voices to motivate a movement.
Meet the #FuelChange Anthem Artists
Green For All’s #FuelChange campaign is mobilizing a movement of people across the country to fight climate change and improve health by bringing zero-emission electric cars, trucks, and buses to underserved neighborhoods. We use music, art, & education to reach impacted communities who’ve traditionally been left out of the climate conversation and develop local leaders to take action in their own neighborhoods.
Transportation is now the number 1 source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., which cause climate change. We have less than 12 years to significantly reduce our emissions to avoid catastrophic global consequences. But this is not only a climate issue, it’s a health and safety issue too. Low-income communities and people of color often live near busy freeways and highways, diesel truck routes, and bus or rail systems that make them more exposed to transportation's dangerous toxins. Emissions from diesel and fossil fuel-powered vehicles causes asthma, decreased lung capacity, low birth weights, problems focusing, and other pollution-related disease. There are now more deaths from traffic-related pollution than traffic-related accidents.
