A year and a half since President Biden took office and established the Justice40 Initiative, what are we learning about how we might leverage this Justice40 moment to make progress towards Justice100 – public funding systems that meet the needs of all communities?
Join us for a conversation about the opportunities and challenges that frontline groups and community-based organizations are encountering as they mobilize to access public funds for community-led climate projects.
With unprecedented federal funding flowing to states, cities, and tribes through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, this webinar will provide actionable examples from work underway in communities across the country and a space to come together to talk about the need for a longer-term strategy to get to Justice100.
