CENTER ON RACE POVERTY & ENVIRONMENT Overview
This is CRPE’s proactive campaign to work with communities of color and low income communities in Kern, Tulare and Kings Counties to identify what green jobs mean to them, to create a vision for their communities that couples health and economic prosperity, to advocate for projects that promote that vision and against projects that hinder that vision. CRPE is also planning to work on pilot projects that implement the community's vision, organic agricultural co-ops that transform the ways farmworkers related and benefit from their expertise in growing food.
CRPE ''s mission is to achieve environmental justice and health sustainable communities through collective action and the law. We have three amibitions in our work: (1) to build individual capacity; (2) increase community power vis-a-vis decision-makers; and (3) address environmental hazards facing the community.
