CEED is the proud recipient of the 2013 Allies for Justice Award from the Headwaters Foundation for Justice for our work on environmental and energy justice. CEED formally received the award at the Headwaters Foundation for Justice’s 15th annual celebration at the Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis. Our honor was memorialized in a beautiful thematic pictorial created by artist Ricardo Levins Morales.Headwaters’ Executive Director, Trista Harris, celebrated CEED by stating that “this year’s honorees exemplify the importance of connecting with the community in bringing about social change” and that Headwaters was “proud to be associated with organizations and individuals like these that are dedicated to promoting environmental equity in our state.” CEED extends its gratitude to the Headwaters Foundation for Justice for honoring and supporting CEED’s work. We recognize our ability to advance environmental justice would not be possible without our community allies who have stood with us, and we thank them as we collectively move environmental justice forward.
