 SAINT HELENA ISLAND, SC


The Gullah/Geechee Nation is faced with numerous climate change impacts including rapid erosion of the coast, sea level rise, and flooding.  However, the Gullah/Geechee issues and those of many indigenous coastal communities have not been addressed in many of the national and international environmental and climate change and adaptation plans.  Please support an opportunity to change that by making a contribution to support the travel expenses for Queen Quet's journey to COP22.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) went into power in 1994, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. The Conference of the Parties (COP) was assigned as the preeminent administering body of the Convention.   This year for the first time, the Gullah/Geechee Nation has an opportunity to have representation at this historic conference.  Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation ( www.QueenQuet.com) has been invited to attend this conference to not only represent her people, but to be able to contribute to the dialogue and share the various environmental endeavors that she is collaborating on with numerous partners.   Please help her bring the voice of our people to this international arena.

Tenki Tenki fa supportin de #GullahGeechee!

Due to your support, I was able to bring the message from the Paris Agreement back home to the Gullah/Geechee Nation. I have been asked to continue to join with global leaders in making sure that this message is heard and that we #RiseUp2018 and insure that the mandates of the agreement are actually done. So, to that end, I shared this message as part of the #Culture4Climate presentation I did to conclude the Global Climate Action Summit.

The mobilization from the GCAS will continue in NYC. I am heading to the United Nations there next month to be a part of additional meetings for the human rights of my people. I pray that you will continue to support me on this journey. Please share the video and the fundraising campaign with your networks and rise up wid we! Tenki Tenki!

Peace,
Queen Quet

Tenki Tenki fa hunnuh continued support!

Your contribution helped to get me to COP22. Due to what I was able to do there, I have been invited to a number of events related to the Paris Climate Agreement and the United States Sustainable Development Goals. One such event that I just returned from was the Climate Heritage Mobilization at the Global Climate Action Summit. So, I wanted you to see my presentation from it so that you see that your investment in me is still bringing a return. I pray that ultimately the return is helping to heal the earth.

Peace,
Queen Quet
