Introducing the Black Liberation and Just Transition Certification Program and reintroducing several established tools

Black Liberation and Just Transition

The Chisholm Legacy Project has launched its Black Liberation and Just Transition Certification Program!

  • The Resource Hub is a dynamic collection of resources that provides holistic support to those resisting extractivism and creating regenerative and democratic systems in their communities. There are over 20 types of resources spanning more than 40 topics, including Conservation and Biodiversity, Economic Justice and Sustainable Buildings.
  • Policies for the People is a comprehensive, growing database of nearly 60 model state, federal, local and international policies, executive orders, processes and resolutions that support Black climate justice leadership, organizations and frontline community members to advance Black Liberation. The policies are divided into 17 categories, ranging from Air Quality, to Conservation and Biodiversity.
  • BIPOC in ECJ provides a directory of Environmental and Climate Justice leaders, as well as several specialist directories to help fill the needs of organizations, institutions, and governments while uplifting BIPOC voices and experiences. TCLP created BIPOC in ECJ to be the antidote to the age-old lamentation: “But I couldn’t find any people of color.”
