Environmental Justice

Working to Advance Environmental Justice for Our People and Planet

NGP’s Black + Green Agenda has teamed up with Patagonia ATL to fight environmental injustices happening across Georgia and spread awareness about the impact of climate change, natural disaster displacement, water pollution, and the high energy burden too many Georgians face.

As part of our collaboration, we’re lifting up the history and lived experiences of the Gullah-Geechee people of Sapelo Island, GA. The Gullah-Geechee are descendants of enslaved people who were brought to Sapelo Island from West Africa in 1802. Through our four-part video series, we highlight the impact of racism, land appropriation, and climate change on the Gullah-Geechee people and hear directly from Sapelo Island residents about their experiences trying to preserve their land, culture, and shrinking community.  

We invite you to watch and share these powerful stories and sign up to get involved in NGP’s Black + Green Agenda and our fight for environmental justice in Georgia.
