Generation Green is 100% Black youth and womxn-led. Our staff is partially composed of Black folks who are queer and gender non-conforming. Our founding team is composed of students and alumni of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The backgrounds of our team range from abolition, anti-militarism, herbalism, communications (film, photography, digital strategy), environmental justice, policy, pan-Africanism, Afrofuturism, gun violence, and more. Much of our staff has origins and heritage from much of the Afrikan diaspora such as Haiti, Southern United States, Panama, and Ethiopia. We have all been personally affected by the discrimination and silencing of Black individuals, communities and experiences in the mainstream environmental world. The uprisings of 2020 created dialogue and an atmosphere of accountability for environmental spaces. Thus, opening doors for Black environmentalists to center our identity in our work and further connect Black social justice issues through an environmental liberation lens.
Generation Green is an ecosystem that strives to foster an intergenerational network, community, and platform that fortifies the leadership of young people in the environmental liberation movement throughout the Afrikan Diaspora. We envision a world where Afrikan people are liberated through collective power building and collaborative ideation. This work connects a plethora of environmental and social justice movements that strive to reimagine a regenerative and abundant world.
