This newsletter has one purpose -- to illuminate the path towards a more just and sustainable future for communities in the U.S. and around the world.

We want to show you how this vision can be achieved by highlighting: (1) profound policies being enacted all over the globe; (2) the funding opportunities that can be used to advance climate justice; and (3) providing indispensable resources from policymakers, researchers, and grassroots organizations. As a movement, we need to dispel any cynicism that the future we want is too far away, and that it will be impossible to realize. It’s not. This is our moment to act! This is not to deny that we face huge challenges. Most of the news these days feels like requiems for a world coming apart. There is an undeniable reality of the magnitude of struggles that we face, and yet that is only part of the full picture. We rarely hear about achievements and innovations that illustrate how our social, economic, and political systems can be transformed to allow for the flourishing of humanity and the planet.  The tools we need and the allies we seek are all around us. Our task at the Center is to help provide the resources, information, political networks, concrete alternatives, and vision of a better world that can inspire others to act.

If you agree, and you have insights, resources, or examples you’d like us to share here, please be in touch. Because once we envision the future we want, we can build it!

What's in This Month's Climate Justice Action Update?

This month we are bringing you: (1) an analysis of historical tribal benefits agreements accompanying the development of offshore win; (2)examples of Pennsylvania coal plants being turned into state’s largest solar farm; (3) Denver’s realization that e-bike vouchers are extremely popular with the public; (4)  information about the expansion of the American Climate Corps; (5) a Japanese mayor’s successful efforts to bring childcare access to her city; and more. Also, check out the EconomicOpportunity Fund from GitLab on how to address workforce development participation gaps. You’ll also find a hefty handful of exciting transportation investment opportunities – for zero-emissions buses to reconnecting communities divided by superhighways. And to round it out, we are bringing you a report on the Green New Deal for Public Housing from the Climate + CommunityProject, feminist perspectives on climate action, and tips for how to make our healthcare systems more climate resilient.

Skim, share, and take inspiration from our latest Update. We hope you’ll share it with your friends and colleagues. And stay tuned for our soon-to-launch Federal Funding Primer Report!  It promises to become THE “go to guide” on federal funding opportunities for achieving climate justice.
