The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy offers our condolences to all those affected by the tragic massacre at Charleston, South Carolina’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday night.

One person killed that night was Reverend and State Senator Clementa Pinckney who worked with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy in 2006 to produce the South Carolina segment in our Treasured Places in Peril video series.

Rev. Pinckney spoke eloquently about the importance of caring for creation and working within nature, particularly in South Carolina’s Lowcountry whose people and culture (including the Gullah people) face a range of impacts from pollution and climate change.
