ABOUT THE ORGANIZATIONS
Southeast Environmental Task Force
The Southeast Environmental Task Force works to empower residents and students on the Southeast Side and the south suburbs of Chicago to improve their local environment. It also promotes pollution prevention and progressive business practices in Calumet region facilities. Another focus is the preservation, restoration, and enhancement of the region’s natural areas and sustainable development of its industrial lands.
Active Transportation Alliance
The mission of Active Transportation Alliance is to make bicycling, walking and public transit so safe, convenient and fun that we will achieve a significant shift from environmentally harmful, sedentary travel to clean, active travel. We advocate for transportation that encourages and promotes safety, physical activity, health, recreation, social interaction, equity, environmental stewardship and resource conservation.
Foresight Design Initiative
Since 2003, Foresight Design Initiative has been consulting individuals and organizations on sustainable development in Chicago, in Illinois, and beyond. We like to think of ourselves as a nimble culture change studio. And we like to think of you as a fellow change agent.
