Together Restoring Economic Empowerment (TREE). Our aim is to bridge the gap between millennials and substantive plans of action, particularly in minority communities. We are excited about the potential change we can facilitate and we want to excite others about TREE and our mission which is why we are hosting our official launch event on Friday, April 24th in Washington D.C. at the David A. Clarke School of Law, University of the District of Columbia.

Many TREE board members work in various civil rights and public interest capacities and see a need to synthesize information for members of our generation. TREE utilizes legal and policy advocacy through action plans. Through streamlining and highlighting various types of poignant movements, TREE will strengthen numbers and awareness around the changing landscape for civil rights action. The plans will fuse the hundreds of publications and actions to unite millennials and address economic and environmental concerns in communities of color. Within only a few months, TREE has obtained a fiscal sponsor with a nationally known foundation, The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment, and TREE is now an independent charitable entity.

Environmental issues, within the last thirty years, have been acknowledged as civil rights issues, given the number of minorities in areas where air and water quality are extremely poor. Historically, environmental justice and civil rights were at the forefront of student and young professional led movements. At our launch event, we are looking to highlight national economic, environmental, and entertainment disparities for people of color. Our audience will be young professionals, legal advocates, and policy experts in these areas. We hope to reach the millennials that are social justice minded, but need direction in implementing the work to become social justice advocates.

Throughout the event, TREE will highlight those who have pledged to advocate on behalf of millennial led advocacy and social justice work. One of our Advisory Board members, the founder of Broccoli City, will also highlight the organization’s involvement in the urban Earth Day celebration over the weekend.
