CLIMATE CHANGE &
“We are all citizens of Planet Earth, and there is no other place we can go. Climate change is a political choice. This is not just about the environment, it's about the community, it's about jobs, it's about justice.”
As An Organization, We Are Committed To:
Intentionally partner with and center those affected underserved, disenfranchised, and marginalized communities by empowering them understand the effects of climate change on them and be a part of the solution to environmental justice issues, that include, but are not limited to, inadequate access to healthy food, inadequate transportation, air and water pollution, and unsafe homes.
Educating our communities that they should have the opportunity to live in a community that is healthy and safe, especially low-income communities and communities of color, who suffer disproportionate exposure to pollution and the corresponding health impacts from that exposure.
Educate and empower our communities on the belief that the benefits of a healthy environment should be available to everyone, and the burdens of pollution should not be borne by sensitive populations or communities that already are experiencing its adverse effects.
Empower and mentor those most affected by climate change through deep relationships, skill-building, resources, and by building on solutions that our communities are already championing.
Prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and anti-racism in all we do.
