Communities for a Better Environment is one of California’s most important Environmental Justice organizations, fighting corporate polluters to advance health and equity in frontline communities up and down the state. They’ve been at it for forty years now, which is definitely something to celebrate. We have mad love for CBE, and are exceedingly proud to join them as allies in the struggle.
CBE is hosting a Norcal fundraising party that honors local Environmental Justice champions. Members, CBE alumni, donors, funders and allies are all welcome. We hope you will join them as they reflect back and look onward.
