Urban Masterclass Network

Empowering Communities. Changing Lives.

Urban Masterclass Network

We want to encourage more African Americans, People of Color, and other under-represented populations to fight for environmental justice and get involved with urban planning.  So often our community screams that we were not involved with urban plans for our community.  In addition, there are climate and environmental impacts to our communities that need our attention.

 

The communities hit hardest by environmental and climate impacts are primarily communities of color — and those least responsible for creating the problem. “People of color are more likely than white people to live alongside power plantsoil refineries and landfills.” (from the LA Times’ Sammy Roth:  Why communities fighting for fair policing also demand environmental justice).

Our young people care!  Let’s give them the tools to voice and fight for justice.
