We care deeply about the well-being of our communities and the people that live in them; and therefore, we dedicate our time to organizing at the intersection of Healing Justice, Embodied Leadership, Transformational Organizing and Political Education.

And now, we are ready to take a big, bold step toward realizing our fundraising potential to support the vital work that Clean Air and Just Resisting do and to simultaneously build grassroots power in our communities! The GIFT Money for Our Movement’s Conference will empower us with best practices, tools, and creative and practical skills to challenge capitalism and gain knowledge on funding our movement. 

 

As we prepare to invest in ourselves through attending the GIFT Money for Our Movements Conference, we’re asking that you please consider supporting our development as leaders and fundraisers in our communities. Through this training in grassroots fundraising, we will strive to develop a financial base that is secure, diversified and reflective of our communities. This ensures that the communities that we work with are in control of the organization and the campaigns we choose, run, and win.

 

Each dollar donated will fund registration fees, plane tickets, and housing for the three days. But we promise that your investment in each of us will have a ripple effect for our communities. In the months following the GIFT Money for Our Movements Conference, we will work collaboratively to integrate the new fundraising tools gained from the conference into planning for Clean Air’s and Just Resisting’s future development and movement-building activities.

 

  Thank you for supporting our region’s leaders as they develop fundraising  and  organizing skills to ensure racial, environmental, and economic justice for all!

ABOUT JUST RESISTING & CLEAN AIR:  

Just Resisting (JR) is an organizing project for Black, People of Color who are committed to the liberation of Black folks. We believe this starts by developing the leadership of people of color to build a grounded and independent radical left, developing home spaces in order to enable more organizers of color throughout the City of Buffalo to resist the ills of white supremacy, hetero-patriarchy, and capitalism. It provides a safe space for its members to voice concerns and offers a means to impact viable change within our community. Through encouraging individual and community healing; political education; challenging power structures; transformative social justice organizing; holding each other accountable; and long-term, sustainable organizing, and leadership development; JR seeks to transform social justice.

 

The Clean Air Coalition is a membership-based, grassroots organization based in Buffalo, New York. Our mission is to build power by developing grassroots leaders who organize their communities to run and win environmental justice and public health campaigns. We prioritize leadership and organizing of working class people and people of color to build a world where our environment promotes health and equity and where systems place communities at the forefront of decision making.  Clean Air works in four distinct neighborhoods with community leaders to improve public health and the environment.
