The National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Youth’s Perspectives on Climate Justice Workgroup, established in 2016, just released a new comprehensive report detailing their recommendations for environmental protection and youth engagement to the EPA. We’ll be joined by members of that workgroup, Anthony Torres and Eriqah Vincent, to discuss the extensive process in putting the report together and their recommendations, which include promoting youth leaders and addressing the health impacts of climate change. This episode is a must listen for organizations who promote youth leadership in their work.

For more, check out the Press Release and Report.

We’ll also be joined by leaders of the Endangered Species Coalition to discuss ongoing attacks on the Endangered Species Act, public lands and waters protections, and climate action. Despite strong public support and an extensive track record of preventing more than 99 percent of listed species from going extinct, the Endangered Species Act is being attacked under the guise of “reform” by the current Administration and politicians on Capitol Hill as part of their polluter-friendly deregulatory agenda.

Tune in for a solutions filled show featuring stories from The New American Road Trip, a cross-country journey taking place right now in an electric car to highlight “Unsung Heroes of Climate Change”. Along the way, the trip is stopping to meet with local leaders, innovators, workers, and communities proving that America’s commitment to fighting climate change is real, is robust, and is going to move us forward to healthier, 100% clean energy future for all.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones!)

The trip started last week at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, where local leaders in the U.S. and around the world set new ambitious goals to fight climate change. At the summit, city and state governments, business leaders and civil society signed a call to action showing their increased ambition to mitigate climate change. Since the summit, the trip has weaved its way across the country, gathering support for the call to action with events in Las Vegas, Boulder, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh featuring local leaders and special guests like actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones).

In Las Vegas, our co-host Antonique Smith joined Michael Bloomberg and CEO of MGM Jim Murren to highlight how renewable energy makes good business sense (picture below, story here).

On Wednesday, September 26th, the trip will conclude by delivering the call to action at Climate Week NYC 2018 to French President Emmanuel Macron, a symbolic gesture to show that America is “still in” when it comes to fighting climate change.

Joining us live on the air from the road trip will be the talented comedian, writer, producer, and activist, JC Coccoli, aka the Earth’s Fiercest Comedy Darling. She’s been helping drive and will share with us some of the stories from stops across the country.

Amber Rose Joins ‘Respect My Vote!’ and Gives Her Top 10 Reasons We Should Vote in the Midterm Elections

 

Rose and her annual Amber Rose SlutWalk have partnered with Hip Hop Caucus’ Respect My Vote! Campaign to Mobilize Women and Everyone Who Cares About Women to the Polls on 11/6/18

 

Los Angeles, CA (September 19, 2018) – Activism is the theme of the 2018 Amber Rose SlutWalk taking place in Los Angeles, CA on October 6th, exactly one month before the midterm elections. Rose has partnered with Hip Hop Caucus’ non-partisan Respect My Vote! campaign as a spokesperson and to collaborate on a special seven week campaign leading up to Election Day on November 6th, to educate, inspire, and mobilize young people to the polls on women’s issues.

To kick off the partnership, Amber Rose SlutWalk and Respect My Vote! released Amber Rose’s Top 10 Reasons We Should Vote, focused on the ways in which those we elect make critical decisions on policies that can either bring us towards greater equality and opportunity for women, or set us back.

“I am committed to ending rape culture and slut shaming and empowering women with the freedom to be who they want to be and achieve what they want to achieve,” said Amber Rose, producer, radio and television personality, author, entrepreneur, and founder of Amber Rose SlutWalk. “We are working to change the culture, but we also have to change our laws to fully protect women from harassment, get justice for violence against women, and ensure equal opportunity for women at work and in school. That is why activism is the theme of SlutWalk this year. We are going to exercise our activism by voting. I am excited to partner with Hip Hop Caucus on the ‘Respect My Vote!’ campaign. We are going from the poles to the polls!”

Amber Rose’s Top 10 Reasons We Should All Vote are featured on her Respect My Vote! pledge to vote page at respectmyvote.com/amberrose. The 10 reasons are what Rose along with SlutWalk and Hip Hop Caucus voters are calling on candidates and elected officials to fight for on behalf of women: #1 Rape and Violence Against Women; #2 Reproductive Health; #3 Equal Pay; #4  Mass Incarceration; #5 LGBTQ Equality; #6 Paid Family Leave; #7 Sexual Harassment; #8 Immigration; #9 Environmental Justice & Health; #10 Student Loans and Education. Full text here: respectmyvote.com/amberrose/#top-ten-reasons.

Also at respectmyvote.com/amberrose people can register to vote and pledge to vote. When people take the pledge to vote, they will receive text and email updates from Rose and Respect My Vote! that inspire people to vote, and that also provide information on polling locations, what to bring to the polls, and how to protect your vote. Rose will also be using her social media platform and the platform of SlutWalk to provide inspiration and information about voting.

Women voters and especially women voters of color are defining the midterm elections and Amber Rose and SlutWalk’s commitment to empowering young voters is a powerful testament to the leadership in and for our culture,” said Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., President and CEO of Hip Hop Caucus, the non-profit organization behind Respect My Vote!.  “We are not only calling on women voters to go to the polls, we are also calling on all people who care about women to vote in the interest of equality and opportunity for women. Hip Hop Caucus is honored to be partnered with Amber Rose SlutWalk for the 10 year anniversary of our Respect My Vote! campaign.

Respect My Vote! will be releasing an Amber Rose special edition Respect My Vote! shirt for SlutWalk on October 6th. The shirt will represent the essence of the power of women at the polls. Prior to SlutWalk, Respect My Vote! will also join Amber Rose Foundation on October 2nd at University of Southern California for OpenED, an open, edgy and empowering fireside chat with Amber Rose and movement leaders, including Hip Hop Caucus’ Executive Director and COO, Liz Havstad.

Last year’s SlutWalk made over a billion impressions online and had over 14,000 people in attendance, and this year the call to action from SlutWalk will be clear, to vote this November on the issues that most impact women’s lives.
