Funds for Community Transformations
As we revive our communities through COVID-19 recovery efforts, we have an opportunity to transition to zero waste systems and redress the injustices perpetuated by waste. Your donation supports GAIA and incredible grassroots leaders fighting pollution, building movements, and transforming cities into places centered on community power, worker rights, racial justice, gender equity, sustainability, and resilience.
