Verde serves communities by building environmental wealth through social enterprise, outreach and advocacy. Our theory of change is that sustainability can be reinterpreted as an anti-poverty strategy.
Bottom Line for Portland
Verde engages community to create healthy neighborhood environments and prevent the displacement of low-income communities of color. Verde transformed a 25-acre landfill into a park in NE Portland and stopped developers from displacing 3,000 Portland mobile homes.
Our friends at Salazar Architect will match up to $2,500 raised, doubling your impact to build healthy communities and environments.
Thanks to Morel Ink, all donors who give $10 or more will receive an exclusive "Verde Supporter" sticker to showcase your commitment to an environmental movement led by people of color and low-income communities.
“Everything Verde does is about what I believe is next-century innovation. Leading with justice and sustainability, Verde finds practical solutions to meet the challenges of climate change and inequity that threaten our communities daily.” —Desireé Williams-Rajee, Verde Board Member
