BENEFITING: Alternatives for Community and Environment, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2015
ACE is made up of, and led by, people from low income communities of color in and around Boston. For 22 years ACE has been getting results and building leadership.
Click on the DONATE button to the right to help support the environmental justice work at ACE.
When I go to ACE events I feel like I can bring my whole self: there's heart in all they do. In fact, it made perfect sense to read the Principles of Environmental Justice that this was the first:
1) Environmental Justice affirms the sacredness of Mother Earth, ecological unity and the interdependence of all species, and the right to be free from ecological destruction.
As a climat activist, I'm often in mostly white groups that talk about how low income communities of color are disproportionately hurt by fossil fuels and environmental toxins. True. And one of the best ways people with privilege can help is by acknowledging and supporting ledership in those communities right here in Boston.
And please come to the fundraiser on May 21st in Roxbury. More info below:
