Centuries of systemic environmental racism has pushed Black communities out of their neighborhoods through redlining, forcing them to drink contaminated water, breathe dirty air, and disproportionately feel the direct impacts of climate change.
To achieve environmental justice, we must also achieve racial and social justice.
In the wake of COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement, environmental advocacy must reflect the priorities of communities of color. To do that, we need environmental organizations to influence policy, and win elections.
As we head into the November election, you can support environmental political organizing groups who are working to protect Black lives from environmental injustice by participating in Credo Mobile's monthly public vote that determines how Credo will allocate $150,000 to three different organizations.Sign the action today and we'll send you the link to vote for organizers working to provide clean air, clean water, public lands, and a safe climate for all to receive funding from CREDO.
