CLF Releases 2021 Annual Report
2021 was a landmark year for CLF as we celebrated 10 years of impact in supporting climate justice and climate resilience initiatives. Since 2012, we have leveraged over $80 million in grants and now have 83 active program partners across the U.S. and the Caribbean. Our work has continued to bridge the humanitarian and climate sectors to support Black, Indigenous, communities of color and island nations.
Our Climate Resilience Initiative (CRI) reached 580,000 people in seven Caribbean countries through investments in emergency preparedness and climate adaptation. These projects ensure that critical services remain available before, during and after natural disasters.
We continue to support climate justice organizations and movements to combat the inequitable effects of climate change. We partnered with powerful climate justice leaders and organizers including the Movement for Black Lives, Black Visions, and the Center for Popular Democracy. And our Founder, Rihanna, was named a National Hero of Barbados, an honor that is given to individuals whose contributions have altered the course of history for the country!
As we reflect on the last 10 years, we are in awe of what our partners have achieved. It’s our honor to support and work shoulder-to-shoulder with them in service of their visions of climate resilience and climate justice in their communities.
