Climate Change and Health Equity

At CEED we understand, climate change poses an existential dilemma. We also know that communities of color, indigenous communities and low income communities (i.e. environmental justice communities) are facing the worst impacts of climate change.



We believe facing this challenge requires an explicit and conscious investment in investigating solutions that center racial and economic equity and a commitment to meaningfully involve the voices and positions of EJ communities. We advocate for climate policy solutions that prioritize public health benefits; address the root causes of climate vulnerability in EJ communities and create meaningful and effective channels of participation by community members in climate action planning.
