Unify: 2nd Annual Hip Hop For Change Environmental Equity Summit

The environmental movement has a long history of elitism and racism. The Green 2.0 campaign released a study in 2015 showing that POC make less than 17% of the 300 environmental organizations surveyed. 95% of these groups’ governing boards were White. Experts in the field, such as Governor Jerry Brown’s senior advisor, Clifford Rechtschaffen, agree that diversity remains one of the central challenges of the environmental movement, yet also one of the central opportunities. As Oakland’s leading advocate for social justice through hip hop culture, we will host UNIFY: The 2nd Annual Oakland Environmental Equity Summit at the Greenpeace Actions Warehouse.The event will be free to the public and will raise money for local POC-led environmental justice groups and environmental education in Bay Area schools. The name is derived from one of the four principles of Hip Hop(peace, love unity and having fun).
