The challenges of the last year have made our team especially aware of how lucky we are to be part of an industry which has not only enabled us to weather the many trials of 2020, but also which has allowed us to continue our mission to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy. As we reflect on our successes in 2020, we acknowledge we are in this together with our clients and the communities we are all part of. For the past few years, our team has selected organizations to support that are similarly driven to improve the livelihoods of all members of our communities. This year, we selected four organizations which promote social justice, community development, and environmental protection, and you can find information about them below.
Southern Poverty Law Center
The SPLC is a catalyst for racial justice in the South and beyond, working in partnership with communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements, and advance the human rights of all people. They work to fight hate, teach tolerance, and seek justice.
Mary’s Place provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. They provide health programs, housing and stability, empowerment, employment, and food and nutrition.
Got Green organizes for environmental, racial, and economic justice as a South Seattle-based grassroots organization led by people of color and low-income people. Got Green cultivates multi-generational community leaders to be central voices in the Green Movement in order to ensure that the benefits of the green movement and green economy (green jobs, healthy food, energy efficient & healthy homes, public transit) reach low-income communities and communities of color.
The Trust for Public Land
Trust for Public Land creates parks, schoolyards, and trails, and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come.
