Sea level rise and other climate changes impacts are compounding the work to protect the Sea Island environment.  Yet, Queen Quet  is committed to this work daily.  Queen Quet  has successfully worked against offshore oil drilling and seismic gun use in the Atlantic Ocean and is actively engaged with global partners in reaching the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.    On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years and the Gullah/Geechee Nation  is working to achieve these goals during the International Decade of People of African Descent.   With your support, the Gullah/Geechee can insure that we have representation in the major planning and engagement activities to reach these goals and to insure that the Paris Agreement to protect the environment are achieved.   So, Tenki Tenki fa hep we send Queen Quet  ta de UN one mo ‘gain!
