Under the Justice pillar, CLF invests in equity and justice efforts in the U.S. and Caribbean particularly focused on climate justice.
Through the Justice pillar, we support organizations on the frontlines fighting for new, equitable systems and policy change. Our Justice grants are focused on and led by women, youth, Black, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+ and people of color to accelerate climate justice for those at greatest risk.
In early 2022, CLF partnered with #StartSmall, Jack Dorsey’s philanthropic initiative, to commit $15 million to 18 organizations in the U.S. and Caribbean. This powerful group of climate justice leaders and organizers is impacting seven Caribbean countries and nearly all 50 states.
"At the Clara Lionel Foundation, much of the work is rooted in the understanding that climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, with communities of color and island nations facing the brunt of climate change. This is why CLF prioritizes both climate resilience and climate justice work across the U.S. and Caribbean."
