Green For All Responds to Ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement
Today, President Obama announced a historic moment in the fight against climate change. The world has crossed the threshold needed to bring the Paris Agreement into force on November 4th.
In response Vien Truong, Director of Green For All released the following statement:
“The ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement today is a historic step forward to fight climate change not only in the United States but around the world.”
“Communities of color are hit first and worst by the pollution from the fossil fuel industry around our country. We must protect the health and safety of the millions of people on those frontlines as we implement this agreement worldwide. If we are to meet the Climate Agreement goals, we must invest deeply in the frontlines and ensure that all communities are protected from climate change devastation.”
