Since climate action is one of the goals, Queen Quet is disappointed that her travel schedule for the Gullah/Geechee Land & Legacy World Tourwill preclude her from attending the first of a series of town hall meetings to be led by one of the partners of the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition, the South Carolina Aquarium regarding sea level rise (http://www.scaquarium.org/townhalls/). However, she will be taking part in each of the subsequent meetings given that she has been an extremely active and vocal leader locally, nationally, and internationally in regard to this issue for several years.
Queen Quet is known for bringing together circles of people of diverse backgrounds to connect with one another on a wide range of issues. So, she is gladly returning back to the Gullah/Geechee Nation for “Hands Across the Sands” at Folly Beach on May 21, 2016 at 11:45 am in order to literally bring the hands of people together on the coast. She will be one of the speakers at this event as they draw more attention to the movement to prevent seismic gun use along the Gullah/Geechee Nation‘s coast.
