Youth for Environmental Justice (YouthEJ)


Name
Youth for Environmental Justice (YouthEJ)
Vision
CBE envisions a society in which production and consumption are based on environmental and social sustainability, where it’s held as a basic human right to breathe clean air and drink clean water in the environment where we live, work, go to school, play, and pray—regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, culture, ability, nationality, or income.
Mission
Youth Environmental Justice is committed to empower youth to take action to transform conditions in predominantly low-income communities of color. It does this through consciousness raising, organizing, and leadership development.
