Advocacy, Public Policy & Research

Baltimore Green Justice Workers Cooperative is committed to partnering with a variety of stakeholders to provide historically marginalized, under-served communities with high-quality advocacy, public policy and community-based participatory research and technology support.  

Supporting Youth Leadership

YOUTH WARRIORS (YW) was an EJ organization founded by one of the Founding Members of the Baltimore Green Justice Workers Cooperative; it operated from 1996 - 2003 in Baltimore, MD as an afterschool program for middle and high school aged youth who were interested in becoming change agents in the fight against environmental injustice.  College students from local universities worked as youth organizers and mentors as part of an internship program.   In honor of that legacy, Baltimore Green Justice Workers Cooperative plans to offer an annual small grant award ($500 - $2,500) to teams of youth and young adults of color who live in marginalized, under-served neighborhoods in Baltimore and who want to organize efforts to fight environmental, social and economic injustices.  The Grant Award Committee will include former YW participants, former Youth Organizers, Members of the Baltimore Green Justice Workers Cooperative and its Advisory Board.
