I have recently started working with UW Earthlab and the One Roof Foundation to document the impact of new grants provided to Seattle-area non-profit organizations to advance work towards environmental justice and social change. The One Roof Foundation is a relatively new organization, which serves as the philanthropic arm of the Climate Pledge Arena and Seattle Kraken. Their work focuses on three pillars: youth access to hockey, youth homelessness, and environmental justice. By working with the UW Earthlab, our goal is to document the work of community-based organizations on environmental justice, and the impact of funding provided by the One Roof Foundation and Amazon for their 2021 Climate Sustainability Grants.
The 2021 grantees include:
- Bike Works
- Chief Seattle Club
- Duwamish River Community Coalition
- Lake City Collective
- Seattle Parks Foundation
- Spark Northwest
- Transportation Choices
I encourage you to click on the links to the organizations to learn about their work and opportunities to get involved.
Over the course of this year, we will be working with UW students to learn about how each of these organizations is working towards environmental justice, and the impact of their climate sustainability grants. Our goal is to help document the students’ learning and the stories of the grantees impacts for the foundation. This will be done collaboratively with the organizations, allowing each group to provide their own voices to these stories.
