Durham, North Carolina Dec 20, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Rural Beacon Initiative, LLC (RBI) is excited to announce its partnership with The Robert D. Bullard Center for Environmental and Climate Justice at Texas Southern University.
Founded in 2021, The Robert D. Bullard Center for Environmental and Climate Justice at Texas Southern University was launched to address longstanding issues of systemic inequality and structural racism that cause disproportionate pain, suffering, and death in Black and other people of color communities.
A North Carolina-based social enterprise, RBI is committed to advancing business sustainability and environmental justice through consultancy, public education, and the deployment of replicable, scalable, and sustainable farming solutions.
“Both of our larger visions align with not only fighting the forces that keep BIPOC individuals locked out of opportunity but working in a collaborative, laser-focused way,” noted Dr. Robert Bullard. “We’re fighting to ensure forgotten communities receive their fair share of benefits, investments, and funds for environmental, economic, energy, climate, health, and racial justice change.”
“Our partnership will ensure that climate justice is prioritized in clean energy solutions,” added William Barber III, CEO of Rural Beacon Initiative. “The current climate crisis requires solutions that not only lower emissions and electrify communities but create real economic opportunities for those that have too long been siloed from this conversation. We must see communities not only as new customer basis for green products, but as partners, co-creators, and co-owners of the sustainable economy being built for us all.”
