ACE

Building power for environmental justice

 

Alternatives for Community & Environment (ACE) builds the power of communities of color and low income communities in Massachusetts to eradicate environmental racism and classism, create healthy, sustainable communities, and achieve environmental justice.

 

Our Vision of Change

Systemic change means moving beyond solving problems one by one to eliminating the root causes of environmental injustice. ACE is anchoring a movement of people who have been excluded from decision-making to confront power directly and demand fundamental changes in the rules of the game, so together we can achieve our right to a healthy environment.

 

We have three program areas:

 

Transit Justice

The T Rider's Union (TRU) organizes public transit riders to build a unified voice and movement for better public transportation in Greater Boston. TRU focuses our organizing on lower income riders and riders of color who must depend on public transit to reach their daily destinations. 

 

Youth Organizing

Roxbury Environmental Empowerment Project (REEP) develops and supports youth leadership in our home neighborhood through a school-based environmental justice curriculum, an after-school youth leadership program, and youth-led organizing projects.

 

Legal Services

Our Environmental Justice Legal Services (EJLS) program provides legal and technical assistance and capacity building services to help strengthen and support grassroots groups working on environmental justice in our region.
