Supporting Climate Justice Advocates
The Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund is an intermediary partner for foundations and donors to support frontline organizations that are leading the most effective climate justice strategies. Through deep relationships with community-led groups working at the intersection of climate change, racial justice and economic equity, the Equity Fund is advancing climate and clean energy policies that create green jobs.
“The Equity Fund is helping to advance local work while contributing to the national environmental justice movement,” says Lois R. DeBacker, managing director of Kresge’s Environment Program. “We must invest more funding into BIPOC-led organizations that are fighting, and winning, the battle to protect the people and the planet.”
