Little Village Environmental Justice Organization
Our mission is to work with our families, coworkers, and neighbors to improve our environment and lives in Little Village and Chicago through democracy in action. We work for a real voice in building democracy, including if, how, when and where any development of our communities takes place, as the basis for environmental, economic and social justice. Our environment is where we live, work, study, play and pray. We work with, not against, our Mother Earth and Nature to once again make our air healthy to breath, our water safe to drink and to free our earth from poisons to grow healthy foods. We believe democracy means giving time and space for every voice to be heard and counted in everyday matters, full participation in all types of decision-making that affects our lives, and determining the future of our neighborhood and city. Little Village Park FacilitiesWe work to unite our community's talents, assets, and power to build a society that treats all of us equally: no matter what race, culture, ethnicity, age, or gender we are. In Unity we have the strength to forge economic, environmental and social justice to overcome the barriers of poverty that surround us and build self-determination. We work for justice at home and abroad, connecting our local struggle for democracy with the global one and live by the principle that, as working and poor people of color, we have the right to control our lives and resources.
