A diverse women-led Board of Directors
Working with frontline communities most impacted by pollution
Using science to inform advocacy
Improving the quality of our air
And the quality of our democracy
Downwinders at Risk Education Fund is dedicated to taking effective action on behalf of those being harmed by air pollution. Our goal is to build a strong grassroots constituency and create new strategies for clean air in North Texas. We do this by informing, connecting, and mobilizing citizens to become active participants in the decision-making that affects the air we breathe. In doing so, we improve both the quality of our air and the quality of our democracy.
We’re committed to working for environmental justice with communities impacted by the worst pollution; to deliver the best science to those communities; to making decisions about pollution and polluters more democratic; to providing solutions to the problems we spotlight, and to funding staff devoted to grassroots empowerment.
We support COMMUNITY SCIENCE, COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT and are a COMMUNITY WATCHDOG.
