Think 100% Earth Month Events: Paris to Pittsburgh Film Screenings

Hip Hop Caucus’ Think 100% Platform Screens Paris to Pittsburgh Documentary in Cities Across America for Earth Month to Inspire More Grassroots Action in Communities Impacted First and Worst by Climate Change

Documentary distributed by National Geographic tells stories of climate impacts and communities leading on climate solutions in diverse places across the U.S. This Earth Month grassroots screening series will inspire locally led action in 10 major cities across the country.

Washington D.C. (April 11, 2019) – Hip Hop Caucus’ Think 100%: the Coolest Show on Climate Change has partnered with Paris to Pittsburgh producers to screen the recently released National Geographic film at community events Hip Hop Caucus’ city based Leadership Committees have organized. The free screenings will bring together community leaders, advocates, cultural influencers, local government officials, and young people to inspire local climate action. The events will be held throughout the month of April, which is Earth Month, in Orlando, FL, Harlem, NY, Charlotte, NC, Virginia Beach, VA, Detroit, MI, New Orleans, LA, Miami, FL, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, CA, and Boston, MA.

Paris to Pittsburgh is a new film from National Geographic, produced by RadicalMedia in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, and narrated by Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning actress and activist Rachel Brosnahan. The film brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards and highlights urban and rural communities’ climate solutions.  

Communities of color and low-income communities are impacted first and worst by climate change. Paris to Pittsburgh does an excellent job telling diverse stories about both climate impacts on people and climate solutions people and local governments are implementing.,” said Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., Hip Hop Caucus President and CEO and Think 100% Show Co-host. “Everyone can play a role in solving climate change, and the film shows that there is hope in that. We are thrilled that through our Think 100% storytelling platform and our grassroots Leadership Committees we can share Paris to Pittsburgh with local leaders and influencers to educate and move more people to action.

The film’s title refers to President Trump’s statement when he announced his intention to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.” The Mayor of Pittsburgh immediately countered that their city would stick to their commitments to do their part to meet the Paris agreement targets and hundreds of cities followed suit, signing the “We Are Still In” declaration.. Through leadership in states and cities, the United States is more than halfway to its Paris Agreement commitments despite federal inaction.  

The free screenings will feature discussions sessions following the film and coordination of a collective action decided upon by the attendees to advance just-solutions to climate change in their local communities.

“Paris to Pittsburgh tells the stories of some the frontline communities who are grappling with the impacts of climate change, and more importantly, developing their own solutions,” said Antha Williams, head of Bloomberg Philanthropies environmental programs and consulting producer for Paris to Pittsburgh. “We are thrilled to partner with Hip Hop Caucus to bring these stories to new audiences and build an even stronger climate movement to protect everyone.”

The screening series kicked off on April 4th last week in Orlando with a live production of Think 100%: the Coolest Show on Climate Change at the National Forum for Black Public Administrators, where conference attendees watched the film and took part in an interactive panel discussion with Chris Castro, film participant and Director of Sustainability & Resilience for the City of Orlando; Michelle Suarez, Regional Director of Organize Florida; Robin Harris, a local climate and environmental justice advocate; and guest Think 100% host Brandi Williams, Hip Hop Caucus Charlotte Coordinator. The rest of the screenings will take place throughout April.

Watch Part of the Interview with Governor Inslee

Nathan Phillips, Indigenous Leaders, and Catholic Priest Speak Out [Jan 29, 2019]


On last week’s episode we shared a clip of an interview our Think 100% Show co-host Rev Yearwood did with Nathan Phillips, the Native American elder and veteran who peacefully stepped in when the students of Covington Catholic High School had worked themselves into a mob on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial following the Indigenous People’s March on January 18th. The videos captured of the encounter were seen around the world and while the initial response was of almost universal horror at the bigotry displayed, within days the narrative had shifted and even President Trump weighed in with support for the Catholic school students.


This special episode of Think 100% aired on the day we remember the Bear River Massacre that took place January 29, 1863. We dive into what happened on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, what the Indigenous People’s Movement is about, what our climate movement can do to follow the knowledge, wisdom and expertise of Indigenous people’s across this country and world, and the crossroads the Catholic Church is at today between a culture of division and bigotry, or a vehicle of peace and nonviolence.


Our guests are inspiring leaders who help us understand what this all means in historical, spiritual, religious, cultural, and political context. We talk with Nathan Phillips, Chase Iron Eyes of Lakota Law Project, Quese IMC, an award winning recording artist and cultural activist, Phyllis Young, of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Father John Dear, a Catholic priest who has spent 40 years advocating for nonviolence.

A Fight We Can All Get Behind. [January 8, 2019]


Environmental racism is playing out in Union Hill, a predominately African-American community in rural Virginia founded by freed slaves. One of the largest monopoly utilities in the country and corporate donors in Virginia politics is helping run a campaign of disinformation in order to build a massive polluting gas compressor station in the heart of the community as part of the massive Atlantic Coast Pipeline project. In this show our hosts are joined by the actor and activist Tim Guinee, as well as Pastor Paul Wilson, a leader of the #WeAreAlllUnionHill coalition, to breakdown what’s happening in Union Hill, Virginia — a fight you should be involved in if you care about environmental justice, transitioning off fossil fuels, holding elected officials accountable, and protecting the health and heritage of communities.
