To fight environmental injustice and challenge the cultural and systemic roots of white supremacy.
Our purpose is rooted in historical struggle, to advance collective resistance and power; to support and fight against pollution, exploitation and existential threats to life – ultimately build for the health, wellbeing and self-reliance of the Inland Empire in a way that uproots white supremacy and the reigning hegemonic extractive systems.
Our Vision is of a future where anyone: no matter their ethnicity, culture, gender, economic class, or migration status can reach their full mental, physical, and emotional potential. We envision a society that centers collective decision making around people’s needs; maintains and encourages balance in our relationship with the world and each other; and is sustainable, inclusive, accepting and nourishing.
