People often ask me what the environment has to do with poverty, and why communities of color are getting so active in the fight against climate change.
Today, we released a new video that says it all.
A New Sound communicates both the pain of the old economy, and the promise of the new. It illustrates why the Senate must pass bold climate legislation this fall, and why we need a vibrant movement based in low-income communities and communities of color.
It is a moving depiction of why we need an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
