Communities for a Better Environment

Huntington Park, Calif.



Through grassroots activism, environmental research and legal assistance, the environmental-justice organization helps minority residents in underserved, industrialized communities throughout California change policies and practices that threaten their health. It is using a three-year grant to develop climate-resilience plans for the communities of Wilmington and Richmond and to share its methodology and model with policymakers and practitioners.
