ECA values the contribution of the many organizations working toward the preservation of a livable planet and we believe that collaboration is what will move us more quickly toward that goal.

ECA and its partner organizations support one another in reaching our common goal of addressing climate change.

 


Collaborative Partnerships

ECA develops Collaborative Partnerships with climate related organizations to fulfill our mission and engage elders in climate action at a national level.  We work with the organization to develop partnership projects that closely align to the vision and core values of ECA. Collaborations include projects, actions and events that are relevant to our membership and have a large geographic scope.

Moms Clean Air Force

Moms Clean Air Force

Moms have passion and power — an unbeatable combination. We are harnessing the strength of mother love to fight back against polluters. Moms are uniting to come out in strength for our kids’ right to clean air — just as our parents fought for us, forty years ago, to get the Clean Air Act signed into law by President Richard Nixon. Moms Clean Air Force is nonpartisan–because clean air should be more important than politics.

 

Mothers and Others for Clean Air

Mothers and Others for Clean Air

Mothers & Others For Clean Air creates partnerships between scientists, healthcare providers, parents, teachers, youth, and organizations to facilitate collective learning and action in the southeast. Our mission is to protect children’s health by reducing the impacts of air pollution and climate change throughout the Southeast. We work across a 10 state region: Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.

Over the last few years we have listened to our communities and allies as well as reviewed all science based researching across the southeast to ensure our next phase of work is inclusive and addresses the most pressing needs for climate work in the southeast. We heard loud and clear education and educational resources to move people to action are the greatest need. Education of the public, decision makers, school communities and the medical community on the serious health conditions resulting from both air pollution and climate change so that change can happen.

The next greatest need was connection and dialogue among these communities which is why we are building The Healthy Air Alliance of the Southeast. It was created with an understanding that connecting and learning from each other is critical to solving environmental health issues, but so is getting directly involved by taking actions. The Alliance builds the capacity of the movement by breaking down silos, sharing existing resources, developing new science-based shareable digital resources with community input, and offering tailored online training. It also provides opportunities for concerned citizens and professionals advocate directly with decision makers through one-on-one meetings or testimonies, talking to the media or writing articles or opinion pieces.

But in 2021, the climate crisis is worsening and the fight continues. Corporations and elected officials don’t think that they need to listen to young people, but this year, we’ll make them listen. This year, we’ll be mobilizing members of our original US Climate Strike Coalition, and many more youth-led organizations, to conduct persistent actions against corporations and hold them accountable.
