Stay Black, Stay Green
THE COLLECTIVE DIFFERENCE
The Black Environmental Collective is a cross-sectoral network of Black leaders, rooted in a commitment to environmental equity and social justice. We bridge the gap between community experiences, resource and information sharing, public policy, education, and bringing people and ideas together that would not otherwise meet.
Informed by a diverse set of experiences and a critical interdisciplinary lens, as a program we undertake community engagement and education, collaboration and partnership , movement and coalition building, and policy & issue advocacy. We seek to expand equitable and just outcomes, strengthen the voices of Black people within the environmental justice movement, and create additional pathways to success for youth and burgeoning leaders within the sustainability sector. Our work spans several areas: environment/place, food, climate change, and quality of life.
The Black Environmental Collective is an authentic space where leaders of color can quickly, empathetically, and responsibly respond to the needs of Black populations as environmental emergencies persist and arise. Our success is rooted in our belief in asking critical questions. We serve to challenge and disrupt perpetually significant environmental threats and impacts in Black Communities. We are committed to acknowledging and acting on the need to address systemic root causes of environmental discrimination and creating effective solutions for progress and sustainability.
