Review for Action Center Inc, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Energy Justice Network hands down does some of the best advocacy on the behalf of communities impacted by dirty energy. They keep on top of industry trends and know the ins and outs of battling for environmental justice amid complex regulatory and political environments. They conceive of and implement winning strategies, conduct outstanding facility-specific and sector-wide research, effectively partner with academic institutions, provide some of the best technical and legal support, help build strong coalitions, empower others to be more effective, inspire others, freely share information, and do so generously. Moreover, rather than solely "fighting fires", they advocate for sustainable policies, programs and practices to support truly clean energy and sustainable solutions to society's inter-related energy, climate and waste management problems. They do all of this upholding the highest ethical and professional standards.

Review for Missoula Urban Demonstration Project, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I teach in the Enviornmenal Studies Program at the University of Montana. MUD provides great learning and leadership opportunities for students to be involved in MUD programs, projects, and community events. MUD also serves as an incubator for new sustainability ideas and helps community members become sustainabiltiy "pioneers" themselves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Going to a grey water workshop.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Mobilze membership to advocate and do grassroots lobbying on sustainabilty policies and intiatives that facilitate urban sustainability at the city and county level -- like you did with the chicken ordiance. How about advocating on green buildings policy (and/or green roofs), climate action planning, distributed energy. Get more political.
