Larry Long will be performing with Dan Chouinard, Prudence Johnson, and Jearlyn Steele for an evening of community, inspiration, and music to support the work of two vital organizations working for environmental justice and sustainability: Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC) and MN350.
This Moment: The emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement has opened the opportunity to talk about race and address inequity in new ways for Minnesota. Meanwhile, action on climate is a necessity. Author and 350.org founder Bill McKibben has called Minnesota “ground zero” in the fight to save the climate, due to proposed expansion of pipelines to transport toxic oil from the alberta Tar Sands and other oil bound for export through Minnesota’s pristine North Country. The recent devastation of the terrorist attack on an AME Church in Charleston and the breakthrough of the Pope’s encyclical add urgency and momentum to our movement.
MN350 and NOC are poised to organize–working through their own bases and together–to build the movement for climate and racial justice we need to address these related issues.
Let’s build an inclusive environmental movement and share a sweet musical summer evening with friends.
