Our mission is to improve the environment and quality of life for low income residents of urban communities around Los Angeles. These communities have less than 10% tree canopy, in areas plagued by many hazards to human health and the environment. These individuals are also general of minority populations: A 2014 study found that Black people are 75% more likely than any others to live in “fenceline zones,” an area nearby facilities that handle hazardous wastes. For Latinos, the rate is 60%. Overall, the poverty rate in these areas is 50% higher than the rest of the United States, and the percentage of adults with less than a high school degree is 46% greater than elsewhere in the country.
This lack of education keeps families trapped in an environmentally unjust cycle of poverty and poor physical and mental health. You can be the change they need.
Sponsor Our Programs to Plant Trees, Develop Green Space in Low Income Areas
According to The Nature Conservancy, neighborhoods with more pavement absorb more heat and can be 5-8 degrees hotter. This means ….
- Trees can save residents money on electric bills, giving them long term financial relief.
- Tree coverage and shade saves lives in lower income neighborhoods without air conditioning.
- Mature trees increase home values by 7-19% (source: HGTV), which can help someone financially in a lower income neighborhood
