With co-leadership from partners Planet Detroit and the Detroit Equity Action Lab, ENN has established a joint imperative to recruit, uplift, and mentor BIPOC journalists through the Detroit Energy and Environment Reporting Fellowship program. This year’s selected Energy and Environment Reporting Fellow is Rukiya Colvin, a lifelong resident of east Detroit.
Buildings are for people and our bodies. And the only way to make carbon-free buildings just and equitable is to make them for every type of body.
We recognize that an equitable energy transition requires climate justice, and there is no climate justice without racial justice. The last year has been a time of deep reflection and a realization of much-needed change, for our state as a whole but also for our organization.
