for facilitating Communities United planning process
The Ella Baker Center is the lead organization of the Executive Committee of Communities United, a coalition of 130 organizations of people of color in California working on climate change solutions. Communities United was formed in 2010 and helped to successfully defend California’s clean energy and climate policies. Organizers are now working to transform the coalition into one that can harness the efforts of community groups for longer-term regulatory work on climate and energy policy.
