The Climate crisis is already here.

It’s easy to think of the climate crisis like some slowly creeping monster that inches closer with every reckless decision we make for our planet. Truth is, for many Americans, climate change is already here. In fact, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities across the country have been disproportionately impacted for decades.

 

At TAZO, we believe everyone has a responsibility to not only protect the planet, but those in communities that are most vulnerable to this crisis. And, together, we can achieve climate justice by centering BIPOC-led climate solutions.

Our City Forest trains young BIPOC adults to improve the urban forest across Silicon Valley.

A Brighter future starts with shade

It’s past time to address the disparity in tree cover in our nation’s cities, and bring the benefits of the urban forest to BIPOC communities. Tree equity isn’t just an environmental issue. It’s a moral imperative.

Just like buildings, streets, and sewer lines, trees are essential infrastructure that improve quality of life and impact nearly every aspect of a neighborhood. 

Tree equity can improve the quality of life in a neighborhood, from absorbing heat and capturing air pollution to lowering cooling costs and creating more jobs.
