We are a group of Brown University students mobilizing our campus to fight for climate action and environmental justice on our campus and across Rhode Island.

Environmental Justice

It is impossible to fully and effectively address environmental destruction without addressing issues of injustice. This is why Sunrise Brown focuses on environmental justice, which the EPA defines as “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.” In addition to simply involving all people, environmental justice aims to change the systems of inequality and white supremacy that have perpetuated environmental injustice and provide reparations to those adversely affected by environmental destruction.
