Who We Are In 1988, community activists joined forces with environmental litigators to fight for landmark changes in Northern Manhattan’s air quality. Nearly 30 years later, we have not stopped fighting for justice. Our Story We empower and organize low-income, people of color to build environmentally healthy communities for all. Our Impact WE ACT’s goal is to expand political participation among communities of color and low income residents in order to impact environmental planning and decision making. Our Team We are committed to the mission of achieving environmental and climate justice both in New York City and nationwide. Contact Us WE ACT's headquarters are located in Harlem, New York City.
