Communities of color disproportionately bear environmental burdens. Without leaders who share the values of those communities, their challenges will remain. Only 12% of environmental leaders are people of color, meaning that those who are the most affected by climate change will have the least say in the solution. MobilizeGreen develops leaders who share the values of the communities most impacted by climate change. By removing barriers and creating access to career pathways, MobilizeGreen connects young adults of color with leadership opportunities through partners working to solve environmental issues.
