WE ACT’s mission is to build healthy communities by ensuring that people of color and/or low income residents participate meaningfully in the creation of sound and fair environmental health and protection policies and practices. WE ACT envisions a community that has informed and engaged residents who participate fully in decision-making on key issues that impact their health and community.
CCS is the sole funder of WE ACT's Summer Movies. The grant makes it possible for them to host inspiring movies that highlight pressing issues such as community organizing, women's rights, immigrant’s rights, and the fight against climate change. The films prompt residents to discuss important community concerns and to work together by becoming involved in community advocacy.
