CEC is pleased to welcome the Coalition for Environment, Equity, and Resilience (CEER) as a member organization. CEER’s mission is to raise awareness about the connections between pollution, place, and the public’s health. CEER envisions a Houston region that is equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically strong; where residents have the opportunity to live, work, learn, play, and pray free from environmental hazards.
To make that vision a reality, CEER advocates for public and private investment in protecting communities by cleaning up hazards that contaminate air, water, and land. At the same time, these investments must prevent or reduce flooding.
CEER is a coalition that brings together 27 organizations and their expertise, resources, and tools to meet the needs of communities. Citizens’ Environmental Coalition is proud to be a founding member organization of CEER. CEER works with communities impacted by environmental pollution, hazards and climate change. Each CEER member organization has a mission and vision that advances one or more areas of environment, equity, and resilience. The collective work of CEER coalition members focuses on advancing policy that will transform systems to put people over profits, center communities of color who are disproportionately impacted, and address the legacy of environmental injustice. CEER works directly with community, government officials, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders to act on policy solutions that strengthen equity, public health and resilience.
