Social Justice & Equity Institute
We work to change systems that perpetuate environmental and health disparities related to the impacts of institutional racism and multi-generational trauma.
We acknowledge that we operate on Dine’, Zuni, and Acoma lands.
"Our tradition has always been to protect our children, land and culture. It is our duty and responsibility."
