On April 24th, the Hip Hop Caucus’ Act On Climate (#ActOnClimate) Tour, made its final stop of its spring tour at Clark Atlanta University. Hip Hop Caucus partnered with local and national partners that embarked on a six-state tour to conduct informational seminars to show elected officials in D.C. the emphasis needed on climate solutions.
Contributing their time, passion and knowledge on the tour was Love Life Foundation Founder, Raheem Devaughn, artist, comedian and culture critic Amanda Seales, and RCA recording artist/activist Dee-1. Along with these artists, the tour featured speakers from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Civil rights leader Dr. Gerald Durley and Green For All’s Nikki Silvestri. All hosted and moderated by President and CEO of Hip Hop Caucus, Rev Yearwood. The tour made stops at Hampton, Central State, Wayne State, Howard, North Carolina A&T and Clark Atlanta Universities.
After attending the tour’s stop at Clark and being educated of the battle affecting our the environment, its vital that the students and Hip Hop community use our voice to be the catalyst for environmental law reform in regards to our water and air practices as well as the research and development being conducted for green energy in the present and what is currently planned for the future.
