Afro-Ecology Movement Framework


The Portland African American Leadership Forum (PAALF) and Africa House are partnering on a joint process to explore and understand the impact of climate change and environmental issues on their respective and collective communities.

This process will result in an environment and climate justice plan that helps to prioritize actions and strategies that will ensure environmental impacts are eliminated and benefits, including economic opportunity and investment, are equitably distributed.

The project is funded by Meyer Memorial Trust, with support from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) to partner with PAALF and Africa House on developing this focused strategic planning efforts.
