Beyond Toxics and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Eugene/Springfield are two social and environmental justice organizations located in Eugene, OR. One of the main goals of our organizations is to achieve environmental and climate justice for historically disadvantaged and underserved communities.
Environmental and climate injustices have disproportionately impacted those who contribute the least to the problem. We know that the costs of and benefits in mitigating the impacts of climate change are not equally distributed.
In order to make sure we uplift and prioritize the voices of those most impacted by environmental and climate injustices, we need to pave the way towards sustainable and equitable solutions.
Thus, we have launched the Environmental Justice Pathways effort.
Thank you to our partners and sponsors for their continued support!
