Climate Justice Ambassadors

Climate Justice

Help Plan Tacoma's Climate Future 

Tacoma needs to hear from diverse voices as the City plans for its climate future and Tacoma City Council considers approving a new Climate Justice Plan to be developed over the next year.

 

Climate Justice Ambassadors will help document community stories, priorities, ideas, worries, needs, and opinions and share them with Citizens for a Healthy Bay - a local non-profit that has partnered with the City of Tacoma and who is supporting this engagement effort. Community input recorded and delivered by the Ambassadors will directly guide actions and priorities in the City of Tacoma's Climate Justice Plan.

  

Engagement Overview

With your help, Tacoma can center the voices of frontline communities – those that are underrepresented, underserved, or made vulnerable, and expected to experience the first and worst consequences of climate change. The Climate Justice Plan will help guide City priorities, policy, and investments that work toward a just and sustainable future. We understand and value that people know best how to engage with their own communities, and encourage Ambassadors to engage with their communities in their own way.

 

Current Climate Justice Ambassadors

Our current cohort of Climate Justice Ambassadors are collecting community input related to concerns and priorities now through the end of November.
