Last year, thousands gathered in New York City for the People’s Climate Justice Summit. Crowds swelled with energized, committed people, ready for action. One of those people was Miriam Miranda, whose words rang out over the murmuring masses: “What responsibility are we assuming with our future generations?”
… Miriam and OFRANEH (The Black Fraternal Order of Hondruas) see the urgency every day in their work with the Afro-indigenous Garifuna community. The Garifuna are an agrarian people whose livelihood includes fishing and subsistence farming. But their way of life, their very survival, is now in jeopardy.
