“This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Green Festival. Partners Green America and Global Exchange created a “party with a purpose” that brings together environmentalists, community organizers, sustainable business, art, music, and culture. While the program varies slightly from year to year, the purpose is always the same – to show people that another way of living is possible, one centered on environmental, social, and economic justice.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Zakiya Harris about this year’s upcoming festival in San Francisco. She is the festival’s Regional Director, a hip hop artist, a proud mother, and founder of EarthSeed Consulting, LLC. and Grind for the Green. We discussed how the festival has evolved throughout the last decade, what visitors can look forward to this year, and how the festival addresses issues of climate justice.”
