Environmental Justice Programming at the CMC

Environmental justice programming at the CMC nature field tripCMC community environment program offers a variety of programming throughout the year centered around interactive, educational events and environmental stewardship opportunities. Our bilingual (English/Spanish) environmental events welcome people who may not know how to or feel included to participate in other, more well-known environmental groups. We offer family-friendly, multicultural events to learn about different environmental topics, explore nature together, and take action with one another to care for our common home.

“Our goal is clear: to build, within the next decade, a world where we can meet the needs of the present generations, including everyone, without compromising the possibilities of future generations.” – Pope Francis, TED Talk Oct 2020

Why we do this programming:

  • As a Catholics, we are called to Care for Creation
  • Taking care of our environment is necessary to holistically care for people in need
  • The people most impacted by environmental problems are the people that CMC serves (low-income individuals and people of color)
