Environmental Justice Leaders Workgroup

Climate Work

Helping Tacoma Plan & Act for a Climate-Safe Future

Tacoma needs to hear from diverse voices as the City plans and takes action for
a climate-safe future.  


The Environmental Justice (EJ) Leaders Workgroup participated in facilitated virtual discussions during 2021 to improve engagement and planning processes for the recently adopted 2030 Climate Action Plan. Their input also informed climate actions in the Plan, which will guide City investments that address environmental injustices and benefit frontline communities in Tacoma.

 

Engagement Overview

Participants on the Workgroup were members of frontline communities – those that are underrepresented, underserved, or made vulnerable, and expected to experience the first and worst consequences of climate change. 

Participants were eligible for a $1,000 stipend for their contribution to climate action planning. Their work ended in September 2021.
