Welcome to the Climate and Environmental Justice Action Team.
The CEJ Action Team exists to expand CCLers' understanding of EJ perspectives and to build relationships with EJ communities.
Here's an example:
"There’s too much air pollution in urban hubs. In Newark, NJ, 1 in 4 people has asthma and people die of asthma in Newark. A little bit of money is not going to change that. Enforceable legal limits need to be put on the amount of pollution that companies can emit in places like this." -- Kimi Wei, EJ community member, activist, and action team Steering Committee member
Or to paraphrase, "Don't give me $100 when I'm dying."
CCL can benefit from engaging more with groups doing Climate and Environmental Justice work and finding common ground. We need an honest dialogue where we listen.
The Climate and Environmental Justice Action Team Leaders are Lisa Danz, Debbie Chang, and Didi Mendie.

Fourth Wednesday of each month at
