Border 2012: Community Environmental Law Initiative
The grantee proposes to empower border Environmental Justice communities by training them to effectively participate in environmental decision making, particularly regarding policies and decisions that impact their health and environment. A bilingual handbook will be developed on citizen environmental enforcement, which will be widely disseminated in the border area. A seminar or workshop will also be held to teach grassroots organization leaders from the Texas and Chihuahua border area to use the handbook to assist their communities to address environmental problems and to participate in citizen environmental enforcement through the established public participation mechanisms. In turn, the leaders will commit to teach their own community members so that local community involvement will enable them to better address priority environmental problems on both sides of the border.
