ABOUT US

 

MISSION

Cooperation over Competition in service to the Beloved Earth and the
Beloved Community

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE’S MISSION STATEMENT: To protect the beloved earth, its beloved creatures, and its beloved humans. To challenge racism's role in the climate crisis and harm to the planet. To practice and promote critical race theory and prosocial methodology in exploring and advocating planning, environmental, land, and economic policies that impact the earth. To encourage mitigation policies over simply relying on adaptation when feasible for the (over)developed world.  To use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

 

STRATEGY

Where Do We Go From Here is an advocacy organization focused on the climate crisis, often called climate change. Racism has been a dangerous weapon in continuing practices that are harmful to the environment. Actions such as sprawl, lack of mass transportation investment, labor for the purpose of control, and the destruction of nature are acts empowered by racism.

 

Our approach is educating the public and policymakers on planning, economic, land, and environmental policy tools and advocating for those tools, which will create a more equitable and cooperative society and result in a more sustainable framework that will be more effective in coping with the climate crisis. 

 

SPEAKING & MODERATING

We are available to deliver keynotes, moderate panel discussions, and facilitate workshops on the climate crisis, environmental justice,  scenario planning,  health equity, community/civic engagement, and progressive environmentally supportive projects and initiatives.
