Urban Environmentalists empowers our network of grassroots activists and coalition partners to transform cities and towns into more sustainable, human-centered, and just communities through land use policy reform.
- Environmentalism. We believe that all people are entitled to healthy communities and environments that are supportive of human life and the life of non-human species. We believe that achieving this requires a stable climate.
- Building for people. We promote vibrant, diverse urban communities that nurture their inhabitants and benefit society, and provide abundant housing and opportunities for all.
- Sharing space. We value efficient, equitable use of all limited, shared resources; in particular, our planet’s land is an essential, fixed resource whose benefits should be broadly shared.
Urban Environmentalists is powered by 8,000+ grassroots activists. We have chapters in Illinois and California. Learn more!
