GGJ members and allies have been arriving in Detroit since yesterday for our 6th Membership Assembly, hosted by East Michigan Environmental Action Council (EMEAC)!
As an alliance, we look to Detroit for inspiring examples of how communities have responded to exploitation and abandonment by creating alternatives that build community power through environmental justice education, youth development and collaborative relationship building.
We are converging in Detroit to imagine and plan out a Just Transition away from the fossil fuel economy toward an economy for people and the planet. Folks are coming from as far away as Jakarta and Guatemala, from Los Angeles to Bellingham WA, from Albuquerque NM to Alabama, from Miami to Vermont, and as close as Chicago, Minneapolis and of course Detroit.
