What we aim to solve New!

When we begin to see the risks of climate and environmental injustices as threats to us all, we will begin to see sweeping policy change. What's missing now is the human story of these crises. That story adds urgency to these issues and increases political efficacy for action.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

To help every person realize that climate impacts and environmental injustice can happen to anyone, anywhere.

We use field interviews with the people affected, photographs of the places and people affected, and policy-oriented research to all amplify awareness on our project areas.

We have volunteer staff with years of research, interviews, and photography experience. Our Impact Human team comes from varied backgrounds, and together offers us a unique global perspective. That perspective is essential for our outreach education work that lends a voice to those affected by climate change and environmental devastation. Together, we have over 30 years of experience in digital media, events, the arts, and research, along with language proficiency in Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Flemish, Arabic, Mandarin, and Creole.

Based on website visits, social media shares, and event attendance - we know one-by-one we are helping to increase awareness on climate and environmental injustice through the power of storytelling, visual media, and research.

As of February 2018, we've launched our first three projects !

We have just received our 501c3 status, and are in the process of applying for grants. We hope with grant funding, we can expand our work - and conduct more projects each year, and hold more events to showcase these important stories from the front-lines of climate and environmental injustice.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
