- ABOUT US
- OUR WORK
We believe that vibrant and visionary movements for social change are built from the bottom-up. We also believe that space to do long-term analysis and strategy development that will lead to pro-active policy change and grassroots organizing capable of shifting the balance of power is central to movement-building work.
That is why our work and organizational mission is to forge a set of long-term, collaborative organizing strategies that will build grassroots power in low-income, communities of color in the Bay Area over the coming decade. Further, given the current state of planetary ecology and economy, we believe it is imperative to embed ecological literacy into these developing strategies. Through analysis of the intersecting root causes of racism, poverty and environmental destruction and by learning from inspiring environmental justice movements from around the world, we hope to build the people-power needed to construct local, living democracies rooted in equity and ecological sanity.
