#ItTakesRoots delegation members- comprised of Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Climate Justice Alliance, Indigenous Environmental Network, and Right to the City Alliance members, as well as representatives from the Movement for Black Lives, and the Rising Majority have returned to our various homes, communities, territories, and struggles from our deeply transformative time together this month.
In July 2019, Marion Romero and Julio Sanchez participated in the Energy and Society in Contemporary Capitalism course offered by the Movement of People Affected by Dams (MAB) in partnership with the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This was the first of four 2-week sessions that span over 2 years with different water protectors and grassroots leaders from across Latin America. Below is a reportback for GGJ members from some of what they are learning from this political development opportunity.
Solidarity with the Border Agricultural Workers Project and all of our relatives from El Paso to Mississippi
