Turning Moments Into Momentum, Together
There can be no doubt: The human rights and environmental challenges we face have never been greater. The rising impacts of the climate crisis are touching every part of the world with rising frequency and intensity — and the burdens of those impacts are as inequitable as the system that created the climate crisis itself. Meanwhile, the ongoing pandemic has made the struggle for environmental democracy both more challenging and more urgent.
But if the past 12 months have shown us anything, it’s that, together, we have the power to meet these challenges. The wins highlighted in this annual impact report are each significant in their own right. But taken together, they become more than mere moments. They become momentum.
We know what it takes to win: real corporate accountability, environmental and human rights laws that are strong and effectively enforced, environmental democracy, and financial flows that prioritize human rights and the environment. In short, we are working to make justice the engine that drives environmental decisionmaking, from local government to the global economy. Already, our legal and advocacy strategies are making critical progress. Victories are coming more quickly than ever before in the fight for climate justice, environmental justice, and racial justice.
We are turning these moments of victory into long-term momentum for transformation, and we couldn’t do it without you.
