Detroit Climate Action Committee
We shine a light on environmental hazards, bringing awareness to local environmental issues and opportunities. From Environmental Justice Tours [links to Tour page] that enable participants to view environmental hazards to publishing the Detroit Environmental Agenda, [links to PDF here: https://www.dwej.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ElectionDraftAnnalieseEdits-nohyperlinks.pdf] we are educating citizens about the role a healthy environment plays in a vibrant Detroit.
COLLABORATING FOR THE CLIMATE
Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice (DWEJ) convened The Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DCAC), a unique project of community groups, universities, state agencies, city leaders, environmental/public health organizations, and Detroit businesses and institutions. It brings together these constituents and more to make the plan for how carbon pollution reductions and climate change preparedness projects will contribute to the backbone of Detroit’s comeback—so we rebuild in a way that’s strong and resilient and responsible given the challenges of climate change.
