In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, CJA mobilized to raise money in support of our member group t.e.j.a.s., the first EJ organization in Houston. After the hurricane, t.e.j.a.s. was on the frontlines, providing support to the most impacted communities in Houston. t.e.j.a.s. monitored air and water quality, coordinated responses with local coalitions, watchdoged local industry and government responses, and advocated for forward-looking policies to ensure regenerative industries replace the largest refining and petrochemical complex in the U.S.
CJA was able to support t.e.j.a.s in raising more than $100,000 for Just Recovery work in Houston. Check out our Just Recovery Houston page for more information.
