Thriving, equitable, and sustainable communities that put vulnerable populations and the environment first.
In partnership with communities and clients, we develop evidence-based policies rooted in equity, resilience, and sustainability.
We work closely with community members and organizations to advance sustainable development and municipal equity. We coordinate anti-displacement work and direct action, organize environmental public health research, develop circular waste management principles, and together, build policies for sustainable community development in Miami-Dade County.
We expand equitable weatherization in the region. This includes a direct services legal clinic to assist economically impacted households in accessing existing weatherization programs and addressing any barriers that may exist. More than just energy efficiency, evidence shows weatherization has many benefits, but is also out of reach for many households.
We advocate for systemic change through implementation of policies addressing climate and energy justice, and harmful externalities of the linear extraction economy. This includes advocating for a shift away from fossil fuels towards a 100% renewable energy system that is equitable, economically beneficial, and community-controlled.
We provide litigation support to communities, business entities, and private law firms, empowering the community through our community impact litigation approach.
We offer general counsel services to nonprofits and other entities that otherwise would not qualify for free legal services but whose visions and missions align with sustainable community economic development.
