 Front and Centered invites philanthropic leaders to join a frontline briefing on creating the nation’s most progressive solutions to climate change, right here in Washington State!

Front and Centered—a statewide coalition of community of color-led organizations that is leading on climate justice—will discuss their groundbreaking work, including: CREATING an innovative map that identifies areas of high pollution in proximity to economically disadvantaged communities; DEVELOPING policies that foster economic opportunity AND reduce pollution, including an initiative before voters this November; and ENGAGING and educating voters of color who are often excluded on environmental issues that disproportionately impact their lives. 

Plus, an after-briefing celebration!  Please stay after the briefing for a reception to meet our members and staff and let us share our gratitude for all we’ve accomplished together to protect our air, water and forests, while ensuring communities disproportionately impacted by pollution are healthier, economically stronger and civically more engaged.
