Environmental Justice Task Force – Call to Action!

We are working on a local issue in our community, a Sustainability Commission for the City of Green Bay. This campaign seeks to urge the City of Green Bay to create an Advisory Commission on Sustainability to explore sustainability initiatives that can be implemented in Green Bay. Because state and national institutions are unresponsive to sustainability issues, particularly related to climate change and energy, local governments have both an opportunity and imperative to step up and implement grassroots solutions that will allow our communities to do our part to mitigate climate change. Many cities throughout the nation and Wisconsin have made strides in the past decade, but Green Bay is not one of them. In order to fully realize the potential our city can have to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and provide a more sustainable, livable, and healthy community, a collaborative space needs to be established to realize our options.
