Now, those grassroots groups:
New on the scene, but organizing in the tradition of CEW, is Women Encouraging Empowerment Inc (WEEI). Organizing with immigrant refugee and low income women of color in Boston and the North Shore, they are so new that they don't yet have a website. Fatou Fatty is their Executive Director. You can communicate with them at Women Encouraging Empowerment Inc., 349 Broadway Suite 100, Revere, MA 02151.
Working hard to counteract the effects of mountain top removal, among other environmental disasters being perpetrated by coal and other extractive industries is the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition. OVEC has a comprehensive vision for how environmental justice can be attained in West Virginia, including grassroots organizing, election reform and environmental monitoring.

Now these are just a few of my favorites. You know there are similar groups where you live. Search them out or consult trustworthy intermediaries and funders such as Astraea and ESC to help guarantee innovative grassroots social change and environmental justice organizations in your area are receiving the attention and support that will help them be the change we want to be.
