ECA is following through on its commitment to anti-racism, by examining all of its work to assure that it is free of racist and exclusionary practices and indifference
We have pledged to defend Black lives, to protect the oppressed and those whose voices are not heard. We will continue to demand love, truth, a habitable planet, and fundamental human rights for all. We will not stop until change fully comes.
If your commitment to climate justice is solidly grounded in anti-racism, we need you to help us honor our pledge: JOIN THE NEW ECA EQUITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE
ECA is proud to announce the formation of a new ECA Equity Advisory Committee. We are seeking committed members to join and lead this committee.
This committee will ensure ECA’s commitment to climate and environmental justice through the lens of anti-racism by creating a framework for guiding and evaluating all our organizational efforts.
Committee members will work closely with all ECA committees and initiatives and help identify other like minded organizations for possible future collaborative endeavors. The work of this committee, and all ECA work, is based on the Jemez Principleswhich reflect our commitment to being an inclusive, respectful and grass-roots organization. Committee members should expect to commit about 10 hours each month for various committee meetings and follow up work.
The Equity Advisory Committee is open to ECA members and those from other collaborating organizations.
If you are interested in joining this committee, please complete the online questionnaire. Applications will be screened and approved by the ECA Coordinating Council.

Climate justice is a term used to frame global warming as an ethical and political issue, rather than one that is purely environmental or physical in nature.
Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.
Anti-racism can be defined as some form of focused and sustained action, with the intent to change a system or an institutional policy, practice, procedure, behavior, or idea which has racist effects.
