Take Charge of Change for Environmental Justice and Sustainability
While national news outlets focus on climate change catastrophes in other parts of the country, the Rochester-Finger Lakes region has more environmental problems than many people realize. These include historic flooding, heat warnings, and agricultural challenges.
The Community Foundation’s funding of environmental justice and sustainability is rooted in the understanding that the adverse effects of climate change are felt disproportionately in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color. Our grantmaking aims to empower our most vulnerable communities through investment and inclusion and to make sure that all individuals – in urban, suburban, and rural areas – have access to the benefits of an equitable and green economy.
Partnering with the Foundation to advance environmental justice is a great opportunity for generous individuals to think globally and act locally – not just for the environment but for economic and racial equity. Here are some meaningful ways to take charge of change.
