An Equitable Transition

Our mission statement includes our goal to “advocate for swiftly and equitably transitioning to renewable energy.” A few of our members wrote the following statement that specifies what this goal means to us, and helps to tie our advocacy and education work to environmental and social justice.

We believe that the transition from a fossil fuel economy to a clean energy economy must fully include the needs of people of color and low-income communities.

Please see the following resources from other climate organizations to learn more about environmental justice and an equitable transition to a fossil-free world.
