Community Health Equity is a climate campaign dedicated to advocacy in frontline communities.
Moms Clean Air Force is committed to exposing environmental injustices in frontline communities. We are taking a stand against environmental discrimination, holding legislators accountable for lack of resources, educating communities on their rights and their issues, standing with impacted communities, and fighting for clean air and climate solutions to promote healthy children and healthy communities.
We are working with faith-based communities and meeting folks where they live—in their neighborhoods, on their streets, and in their churches.
President Biden Signs Executive Order to Revitalize Our Nation’s Commitment to Environmental Justice
In response to President Biden’s April 21, 2023, executive order, Stephanie Reese, Moms Clean Air Force Director for DEIJ and Strategic Implementation, said:
“President Biden’s Executive Order advancing environmental justice marks a significant stride in recognizing the enduring challenges faced by communities of color and low-income areas…. The executive order not only acknowledges the persistent struggles of marginalized communities, but also reaffirms environmental justice as both a moral obligation and a crucial component in the fight against climate change.”
