Commitment to our Community

Forest ReLeaf is moving closer to our equity ideal but we have a long way to go to fully reflect social and environmental justice.

At Forest ReLeaf we pledge to take this action in 2020 and beyond to better serve our organization’s mission to enrich all communities:

  • Expand resources and volunteer opportunities to more BIPOC people and communities (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color).
  • Continue to reach out to BIPOC-led organizations and places of faith to partner on community-driven projects, promote available programs, and facilitate participation.
  • Shine a light on the important environmental contributions of BIPOC individuals.
  • Increase racial diversity on our board and in our spheres of influence to better represent the communities we serve.
  • Use our platform as a voice for social and environmental justice.

The voices and messages of our fellow citizens marching ring loud and clear in our ears. 

All people deserve to be seen, heard, welcomed, included and respected. Forest ReLeaf is dedicated to listening and learning as much as we can from our Black community members and will take their lead on how we can best serve as allies, advocates, and helpers. We will also set and share measurable benchmarks to hold ourselves accountable for real change. If you have something to offer or would like to have a deeper dialog about this topic, please reach out. Forest ReLeaf welcomes your insight, perspective, resources, and recommendations.
