Let's Help Keep it Fair!

  1. Create less pollution. When we drive our cars less, and save energy, we help protect people, especially in neighborhoods most affected by pollution.

  2. Make less garbage. Only use what you need. Often, the stuff we take (like a plastic bag at the grocery store, when we’re just buying one item) ends up as waste. Reuse what you can (like steel water bottles). Recycle and compost too. By making less waste, we help protect the people living in neighborhoods most affected by waste.

  3. Learn what’s happening in your city. Many communities have meetings that discuss important issues in the neighborhood.

  4. Encourage family and friends to attend neighborhood meetings, and ask them to be active in your community by voting to let local government leaders know when they think that something is unfair.
