Southern Communities for a Green New Deal (SCGND): Sign On
Link to policy platform: 
In 2020, the Southeast Climate and Energy Network (SCEN) along with the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy (GCCLP), Kingdom Living Temple, and Dogwood Alliance spearheaded the project, Southern Communities for a Green New Deal (SCGND). We have found that while many people are talking about a just transition, very little has been done to make this a reality. As we transition from a carbon-based, extractive economy to a clean renewable energy and regenerative land-based economy rooted in justice and equity, those communities with a legacy of pollution and ecological destruction must not be left behind. Southern communities living on the fence-line and frontlines of environmental injustice and the climate crisis must be included in Green New Deal policies.

The vision of the Green New Deal is to address the climate crisis and create millions of new jobs while ensuring justice and equity. Southern Communities for a Green New Deal goes beyond the Green New Deal Resolution to include visions and demands that take into account the unique realities of the South. This policy platform is the product of a bottom-up, community-based approach to building alignment around shared vision, values, and goals in a way that prioritizes the lived experiences of Southern frontline communities as a opposed to the traditional top-down or corporate approach to problem solving and decision making.
