Queen Quet Standing for Earth and Environmental Justice

Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) was the first Gullah/Geechee in world history to ever take the human rights issues of native Gullah/Geechees before the United Nations Human Rights Commission. Since April 1, 1999, she has continued to be a human rights, land rights, and water rights activist and is known the world over by the term that she coined for herself, “The Art-ivist.” It is natural fit for Queen Quet to be engaged in climate action with a myriad of others that are passionate about insuring the sustained health of Mother Earth which will thereby sustain cultural heritage communities like the Gullah/Geechee Nation which Queen Quet is the leader of. Due to the visionary leadership that Queen Quet shows, she has been invited to be a part of several earth justice and environmental events that will conclude Women’s Herstory Month.
