Downwinders at Risk Education Fund

Downwinders at Risk Education Fund strives to take effective action on behalf of those harmed by air pollution. Funding is requested to support their Environmental Equity Project that will seek to address the higher levels of Particulate Matter pollution identified in the southern sector. Using community organizing initiatives, they plan to inform the forwardDallas! land use plan and reduce the negative impact on air quality in the area. This will be facilitated through their Southern Sector Rising Campaign for Environmental Justice, which also seeks to educate policymakers and the public on the need for a city ordinance institutionalizing environmental equity in zoning code. Their work is mostly conducted along the Trinity River Corridor.
