Grants to this Grantee
for Advocates for Community Alternative’s project on local government accountability in Ghana  
The Advocates for Community Alternatives program partners with communities in West Africa to explore development alternatives that are not dependent on mining and carbon extraction. This grant will support the program’s ongoing work in the Donkro Nkwanta region of Ghana to refine their methodology for future community engagement throughout Ghana and West Africa.
for the East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice project  
Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs is the fiscal sponsor of East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice-a core group in several California and national coalitions advocating for zero-emission freight systems to improve the health of residents living near ports and along freight routes; it also works to curb global warming. This renewal grant would allow the organization to continue its community organizing, policy advocacy, and coalition-building work in pursuit of emission reductions in and around Los Angeles ports, as well as its work with a new Clean Freight Coalition linked to California's global warming emission reduction program.
