Climate Change x The Black Community.
Black Communities have been at the center of Climate Change impact but are the least engaged voices in utility planning, local and federal Clean Energy policymaking.
Black Communities are suffering disproportionately from energy burden where Black Households have to make life altering decisions to keep the power on while suffering a growing public health crisis caused by dirty air often resulting in respiratory diseases.
Founders Corey Dennard, aka Mr. Hanky, a multi-platinum producer who grew up in Atlanta, and Michael Hawthorne, a “Beyond Coal” campaigner with the Sierra Club, plan to socialize the climate opportunity in the Black community by engaging influential hip-hop artists and entertainers as cultural translators. “If we don’t frame what clean energy culture looks like, we are well aware of what it looks like when someone else has framed it for us,” Hawthorne told ImpactAlpha. “We’re taking the opportunity to bring all the resources, to bring that cultural lifestyle, to the community so that they can then take ownership of it.”
