If ever we needed a reminder that our government is supposed to work for “we the people,” that time would be now.
And this video does a beautiful job of delivering that message.
Six years ago, during Climate Week NYC, musician Jesse Paris Smith and cellist Rebecca Foon founded Pathway to Paris, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding solutions to climate change.
This week, Paris Smith and Foon launched a video, featuring Patti Smith, Joan Baez and artists, activists, students from 24 countries, 38 cities and 6 continents.
About the video launch, Paris Smith told Rolling Stone:
“A vision for the future includes a just transition out of the era of fossil fuels and into an era of 100% renewable energy, including the critical issues of racial justice, gender equality, protected rights of the indigenous and the end of suffocating poverty. An adoption of true human compassion while dismantling a climate of fear, leaving prejudice and hate in the past and moving toward a future of global unity.”
