Why I Believe in 100%
Commissioner Mariah Parker
Though we're a tiny swath of Georgia, we’re interconnected with people and ecosystems across the world, and securing the future of our planet through bold environmental policy and requisite action is, in a global sense, what a good neighbor does. As well, I understand the disproportionate impact that climate disaster and environmental injustice have on communities of color and low income communities like those I represent, and I want to do what’s right for my immediate neighbors and their kids and grandkids, too. That’s why it’s so important to me that 100% Athens become a reality, and in a way that centers the communities most affected.
