The EJLRI’s mission is “to build power in the communities most affected by environmental burdens by developing leaders to take action to promote safe and healthy environments for all; so that we all have a healthy place to live, work, and play regardless of race, ethnicity, or income.”
The full count of donations for the Environmental Justice League of RI was $77.56, collected in a jar over 20 days in Kennedy Plaza. I just Paypal’d them that amount.
Many of the people who donated appeared to be, themselves, strapped for cash, and based on their stories they were hurting or stymied in other ways that money might have helped.
If you missed the booth this time and still want to donate, you can do so here. Send me the acknowledgment and I’ll post it on the blog!
