The Protecting our Energy Project seeks to educate, engage, and empower Black and Brown women and non-binary individuals to become more aware of the impacts of energy burden and how they can lower their energy bills, engage in Georgia’s Energy Planning Process, and empower them to advocate for clean energy initiatives that prioritize the needs of low-income Black and Brown communities.
The goal of the 100 Girl Hike Initiative is to improve the mental and physical well-being of 100 Black and Brown girls, women, and non-binary individuals by exposing us to enriching outdoor experiences across the state of Georgia, while learning about careers in environment and sustainability. The primary objectives of the program are 1.) to increase access and exposure to nature 2.) to improve mental and physical health and well-being 3.) to inspire the next generation of sustainability and conservation leaders of color, and 4.) to build a supportive community of individuals who enjoy the outdoors.
