Sustainability in Underrepresented Communities

Empowering Economic Development, Health, and Environmental Impacts in the Green Movement

Sustainability is the equitable distribution of resources and opportunities while living in balance environmentally, socially, and economically.  Our strength as a community is acknowledging our connectedness with everything and everyone.

What is Sustainability in Underrepresented Communities?

Sustainability is the equitable distribution of resources and opportunities while living in balance – in health, environmentally, socially, and economically. This is achieved by focusing on and connecting key aspects of community.

Improving neighborhoods, building communities and business- es in underserved, low to medium income populations, immi- grant and communities of color, rising transportation costs and a widening disparity in health and wellness are among the policy issues that we will advance.

Our strength as a community, like our ancestors, who were masterful in sustainability, comes from acknowledging our con- nectedness with everything and everyone.
