MISSISSIPPI FOR A GREEN NEW DEAL
Gulf South for a Green New Deal (#GulfSouth4GND) is a regional formation of more than 300 organizations advancing long-existing work towards climate, racial, and economic justice in five states across the Gulf South (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida) and Puerto Rico.
Rooted in bottom-up organizing and driven by frontline leadership, we move together on policy, regional action campaigns, and strategic communications. As the nation’s first formation advancing a regional vision for a just climate transition, we are committed to the realization of a uniquely Gulf South version of a Green New Deal that is anchored in the histories, realities, and power of the region.
