Our grant partners are building the next phase of environmental justice in California. We want to celebrate a few of them as we spring into Earth month this April.
The Sogorea Te’ Land Trust rematriates indigenous Ohlone land. APEN organizes working-class Asian immigrants and refugees as a political force for clean and healthy communities where all people can thrive. Growing The Table supports the best of California agriculture, especially BIPOC producers, in order to nourish families, reduce food waste, and save farms during the COVID-19 crisis.
Led by people of color and indigenous folks, these organizations highlight the compelling and creative organizing happening across California at the intersections of race, gender, economics, and the environment.
Decades ago a powerful network of activists of color organized to advance the idea that the “environment” is not some pristine elsewhere, but part of our day-to-day experience in our communities. The environment is where we live, work, learn, and play.
As we rebuild a feminist California, let’s learn from and with our community of partners to create space for women of color and gender non-conforming folks to thrive.
Together, we can protect the sacred.
