Artists are a tremendously important part of building the Regenerative Economy. The United Frontline Table (UFT) collaborated with 15 movement artists who translated the fifteen regenerative economy policy planks into poster art for the Regenerative Economy Poster Portfolio. The aim of the Poster Portfolio is to help popularize the People’s Orientation to a Regenerative Economy, the framework that was developed by the UFT to Protect, Repair, Invest, and Transform our communities and our climate.


INDIGENOUS AND TRIBAL SOVEREIGNTY

Indigenous peoples have suffered and continue to suffer from historic injustices as a result of dehumanization and racism and the colonization and dispossession of their lands, territories and resources, preventing them from exercising, in particular, their right of self-determination in accordance with their own needs and interests, extending to their rights affirmed in treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements entered into with the United States and its several States.

JUSTICE FOR BLACK COMMUNITIES

About the Artist

Hi I am The Amazing David Brame, Blerd Extraordinaire– I’m an educator, afrofuturist, artist, illustrator but foremost I am a cartoonist. My work fits within a framework of afro-pop surrealism with a heavy focus on narrative and mark making. As a cartoonist I use my skills to make comics and other forms of visual sequential storytelling.

Artist Statement

Justice for Black Communities is spectrum of ideas, feelings, thoughts and actions. With this piece I wanted to highlight the black diaspora and specifically black indigenous communities in the western hemisphere like the Garifuna, Choctaw and Taino. I wanted to use color, movement and notable symbols of Black identity to make those visual relationships more prevalent. I used the words of community members as design elements to further highlight how our bodies and how we present ourselves is intrinsically connected to our continued efforts for justice. My hope is that this plank will provide a launch point and inspiration for further movement and action towards Justice for Black Communities.

PROTECTIONS AND INVESTMENTS FOR SACRIFICE ZONES AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE COMMUNITIES

Everyone has a right to breathe clean air and drink clean water. But that right is not afforded to people living next to the engines of the extractive economy: refineries, incinerators, industrial agriculture, etc. The extractive economy has sacrificed communities in exchange for accumulating wealth, resources, and power. The past and present harms done to people living in “sacrifice zones” and environmental justice communities must be rectified and repaired. Our society cannot build a more just and healthy economy if communities continue to be seen as expendable.

About the Artist

Bec Young

Communities across the U.S. and across the world have been devastated by military occupation, war, and state-sanctioned violence. The U.S. military is also the single largest consumer of fossil fuels in the world, and has served as the enforcer of occupation of Indigenous and sovereign lands while upholding violent resource extraction across the world. Addressing climate change requires ending the military industrial complex.
