Participants and trainers are all from Texas and are hoping to build organizing connections to help foster a larger Texas environmental justice movement. Donations will go towards: – Transportation, help our trainers get to & from Houston, TX to the Rio Grande Valley. We need a van that we can fill with our own Houston participants too! – Education materials – Food and beverages for trainers and participants – Compensation for trainers who subsist on donations and very basic-needs living Partnering organizations: Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services [t.e.j.a.s.], Blackland Prairie Rising Tide, and Curando RGV.
