WE LEAD amplifies the impact of women environmental leaders committed to serving Black and Indigenous communities as they take on big polluters through local, community-based solutions.
Achieving Community Tasks Successfully (ACTS) uses citizen science and community-university partnerships to combat environmental hazards in Houston’s Pleasantville neighborhood, where manufacturing plants, freight trains, and other big polluters have compromised residents’ health. Founded by retired nurse and community activist Bridgette Murray, the nonprofit focuses on community-led air monitoring, food insecurity, and emergency response during storms or other urgent crises.
