OUR ORGANIZING COLLECTIVE
"Grassroots groups challenge the 'business-as-usual" environmentalism that is generally practiced by the more privileged wildlife- and conservation-oriented groups. The focus of activists of color and their constituents reflects their life experiences of social, economic, and political disenfranchisement."
By providing education, training, leadership, and capacity development, we play a crucial role in organizing spaces.
With our partnerships with fellow organizations and young climate leaders we've accomplished winning the fight against pipelines in NYC and TX, diverting over 500 pounds of waste in schools, and more!
Our Work In Action:
Our co-founder, Alexia, is one of the founding members of Survival Bloc, an emerging BIPOC and youth led network across frontline communities in the U.S focused on building dual power through mutual aid/healing/climate survival programs.
Alongside six other frontline environmental justice organizers, S:E has helped develop this network, provide curricula for political education programs across 6 states and start experimenting in Austin, TX to build and facilitate an organizing collective working to strengthen grassroots organizing in the face of climate disaster.
