Dogwood Alliance is in support of the Community Roots Climate Bill of Rights for Asheville, NC.
We thank our good friends at Community Roots for their beautiful work and vision.
We need true climate justice in North Carolina.
The Community Climate Bill of Rights is paradigm-shifting local level legislation.
It asserts our Rights for local self-governance over those of corporations to make a profit – a crucial step in building sustainable communities.
We seek to establish our Rights for local self-governance and a healthy climate, prohibiting the building of new fossil fuel infrastructure, and requiring the City of Asheville to create and implement a bolder Transition Plan to get us to 100% renewable energy by 2030.
It will also establish the RIGHTS OF NATURE in Asheville
