Mission Statement

To reduce carbon emissions in our city by 5% each year, support citywide environmental initiatives, work with local municipalities and environmental organizations to build communities that prioritize sustainability and make Peekskill a cleaner, healthier, and more resilient and just community.

Intersectional environmentalism is an inclusive movement and advocates for the protection of both people and the planet. It illustrates the link between social justice and environmentalism and how they work together to achieve environmental justice.

Goals and Objectives

  • Create a forum to discuss sustainability and increase community-wide participation in local environmental initiatives, e.g., food scraps program/composting.
  • Generate ideas to increase individual practice of sustainable methods and practices.
  • Identify ways to educate the community and promote equitable green practices, that acknowledge and include community members most impacted by climate change
  • Host/participate in community building activities/events.
  • Work with community leaders to make large-scale events at the riverfront zero waste events.
