ECJ Youth and College Toolkit Launched!

May 7, 2018 / By Katherine Taylor, NAACP's Environmental & Climate Justice Communcations Manager

The NAACP’s Environmental and Climate Justice Program launched their Youth and College Organizing Toolkit for Environmental and Climate Justice today.  A beautifully designed resource, the toolkit speaks to young organizers who are either already engaged in environmental and climate justice or who are just starting out.  Many of NAACP’s Youth and College Chapters are leading efforts to end the toxic pollution of Black and other frontline communities who are often hit first and worst by the impact of climate change and the fossil fuel industry. 

This resource furthers those initiatives with the goal of increasing youth leaders in the movement.

In the toolkit, you’ll find:

  • Entry level guidance on how to organize on the grassroots level
  • Instructions on how to run a legislative campaign and speak to lawmakers
  • Innovative ideas on how to host art installations, spoken word, and other types of engaging events
  • Raising the volume of initiatives by working with media and social media organizing
