It is important as NC Conservation Network moves forward that we understand what the needs of low-income communities and communities of color are and how we, through our affiliates and partners, may assist those communities. It is our goal to introduce ourselves to communities with which we have not previously interacted. We want to work with you to improve public health and the environment in the places that you live.
The Time is Now
We recognize that we are living in a time when we must all come together to identify common goals and reach a successful resolution. With your help working in collaboration, we will aim to elevate the concerns of impacted communities and opportunities to support policies and actions that address those concerns.
We Are Here to Help
NC Conservation Network can or may be able to assist you with the following services:
- Providing training opportunities throughout the year on topics including advocacy, organizing, fundraising, and more.
- Acting as a catalyst for coordination of environmental community efforts, including linking organizations together to form coalitions.
- Supporting issue campaigns by engaging North Carolinians to take action through contacting decision-makers, attending hearings, and participating in offline activities.
The Braintrust members are voices for traditionally marginalized and underserved communities of color and/or low income that are disproportionately impacted by pollution in North Carolina. Find out more about the Braintrust.
