The Family Fund's Environment program currently focuses on the challenges of climate change. This clear focus is a shift from our previous broad focus on environmental issues. Our program emphasizes public education on the risk of global warming and implementation of sound solutions, conservation of natural resources, protection of health as affected by the environment, meaningful implementation and enforcement of the nation's environmental laws, and public participation in national environmental policy debates.
Past grants include support for a coalition of grassroots groups to undertake advocacy campaigns in state capitals and Washington, DC; funding for national environmental coalitions to encourage field organizing and public education; and support for coalitions working to pressure Governors and federal agencies to enforce the law against harmful polluters. Grant recipients from this program are shown here.
