CBF Issues Statement On Green 2.0 Report Card

Today, Green 2.0 released new diversity and inclusion data from environmental NGOs and foundations. Green 2.0 is a nonprofit organization working to increase racial and ethnic diversity among environmental organizations. 

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation participated in the survey and Hilary Harp Falk, CBF President & CEO issued this statement.

“Generations of racism and discriminatory policies have created a society where the burdens of an unhealthy Bay are not borne equally. Equitable solutions to these issues require the voices and input from the communities most affected. But for too long, the environmental movement, CBF included, has not provided adequate space for these leaders. That’s why we’re committed to intentionally increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental justice (DEIJ) in our own organization and throughout the Bay restoration effort. 

“Clean water, clean air, and a safe environment are rights we all share. We are thankful to Green 2.0 for leading change across the environmental movement.”
