Tiffany Fant: Allyship with the Red, Black, and Green New Deal
What does it mean to be in allyship with Black and brown communities? In order to create the traction that is needed in the environmental justice movement for solutions is going to require collaboration across racial lines. The Red, Black, and Green New Deal is a national Black climate agenda that is by Black people for Black people but we know that it will be in relationship with allies that this will happen. What does allyship look like? How can allyship be transformational and not transactional and so much more.

Tiffany Fant is a cultural and climate justice activist and a community organizer who wears the banner of being a native Charlottean (NC) proudly. She has served her community as a volunteer assisting various initiatives designed to build better neighborhoods. During the time of Charlotte Uprising, in 2016, she realized that a comprehensive strategy was needed for change and that the strategy would need to be community-based and community led. With this in mind, Tiffany developed the Ubuntu Community Development Project to help develop and implement strategies necessary for change and impact. Most of Tiffany’s local work is hyper focused in the Historic West End Corridor and the west side of Charlotte. She also has a regional and national footprint in climate and environmental justice through the Charlotte-based non-profit Sol Nation.
As the Visionary Architect of Sol Nation, the mission of this organization is to facilitate vulnerable and frontline communities, particularly Black communities, to own their own solutions. Committed to community, Tiffany is a board member of For the Struggle, Inc, co-founder and board member of University East Little League, splits her organizing time between Dogwood Alliance and North Carolina Black-led Organizations and Collectives (NCBLOC), serves on the advisory council for Charlotte’s Strategic Energy Action Plan and is Data and Impact Coordinator for My Brother’s Keeper.
