Co-Creator of Sustainable Brooklyn
Founded by Dominique Drakeford and Whitney McGuire, Sustainable Brooklyn fashionably bridges the gaps between the sustainability movement and TARGETED communities through various modalities, including education and events. Sustainable Brooklyn provides access and insight to sustainability from the lens of the African diaspora to: 1) address the limitations of the current sustainability movement; and 2) implement holistic strategies that provide regenerative solutions for Black liberation - a fertile foundation upon which to thrive, unencumbered. Through resources, events, workshops and curriculums, Sustainable Brooklyn provides tools to shift sustainability literacy to encompass cultural existence and celebration, economic liberation, self healing, land sovereignty and community preservation. With a focus on fashion, food and wellness, Dominique and Whitney collaborate and partner with a myriad of allied stakeholders in various industries, while amplifying the work and voices of BIPOC.
