By becoming a member at WE ACT for Environmental Justice, you will join a movement of hundreds of Northern Manhattan* residents, fellow New Yorkers, and people around the country who are taking action to improve the environment and health of our community. WE ACT members get to participate in working groups – such as the Beauty Inside Out Working Group, Civic Engagement Working Group, Climate Justice Working Group, Healthy Homes Working Group, NYCHA Working Group, Spanish Civic Engagement Working Group, Transportation Working Group, and the Workforce Development Working Group – and other initiatives through which they can address environmental justice issues while building their leadership, organizing, and advocacy skills. We also have a monthly Membership Meeting on the second Saturday of the month, focusing on various topics of interest (click here for an archive of recent meetings). And members receive our monthly email newsletter as well as campaign and event updates.

When you become a WE ACT member, you will be able to:

  • attend educational trips, events, and networking opportunities;
  • participate in organizing and advocacy campaigns;
  • collaborate in working groups to create solutions to climate change, indoor environmental health, and worker rights;
  • participate in our Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training; and
  • help decide and direct local campaigns.
