Taproot Earth’s climate innovators network Taproot Noire organizes people across the African diaspora to build Black solidarity from the Gulf South to the global stage by aligning Global South climate issues and solutions with U.S. frontline advocacy efforts. The network held its inaugural event at COP 27 in Egypt with 150 attendees from 17 countries, catalyzing a collective effort that established the landmark Loss and Damage Fund. 

“If we choose to be our best selves in this moment, if we choose to work through fear in this moment, if we choose courage and each other, we can actually stop not just the oppression of my people, but the oppression of yours.” – Colette Pichon Battle, founder, Taproot Earth
