We are committed to promoting environmental justice through policy development, advocacy, and organizing. We aim to address issues with the air conditioners in St. Clair and Madison Counties. We aim to develop resources that combat housing insecurity. We envision a co-op community thriving with resources, love, and collaborative efforts to create a more peaceful, healthy space to bloom.
