 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 hunnuh support!
