The ACTivist Circle

Why Should I Support WE ACT by Joining the ACTivist Circle?

The ACTivist Circle is an annual giving program for special donors committed to sustaining support of WE ACT’s campaigns and to building WE ACT’s capacity to scale up its efforts to improve environmental policy and practice, locally and nationally.

Members of the ACTivist Circle will be invited to special briefings and dialogues on WE ACT’s efforts and research partnerships that advance climate change regulation, transportation equity and access, chemical policy reform, and sustainable development in the New York region.

Do you share the conviction of Dr. Martin Luther King that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”? Do you agree with Margaret Mead that “a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world”? Do you endorse the vision of vibrant cities, where people of all colors and backgrounds can live together in healthy, sustainable, green communities? If so, then now is the time for you to help WE ACT – New York City’s first and largest non-profit organization exclusively devoted to securing environmental justice – propel itself into a position of commanding leadership on urban environmental protection in New York and beyond. As our organization enters its third decade, we are seeking to strengthen our educational mission and extend our clout even deeper into the halls of political power. Here are some of the things WE ACT intends to achieve over the next decade:
