Description

Taproot Noire invites Black climate leaders from the U.S. and the Global South to an NYC Climate Week social to connect around a global approach to climate justice starting with the frontlines within the African diaspora. Attendees will have the opportunity to coordinate delegations and work connected to COP27 and beyond — but mostly, we’re getting together to be Black and be Free for a concentrated moment in time.
