Air Alliance Houston
Air Alliance Houston works to reduce air pollution and advance environmental justice through equity-centered research, community-based solutions, and collaborative advocacy in Houston, Texas — a global capital of the oil and gas industry and hub of super pollutant-emitting activities.
A member of Pisces’ grantee, Moving Forward Network, Air Alliance Houston’s innovative model leverages community-driven advocacy and data to impact state and local regulations and enforcement, while simultaneously building community power and local accountability measures. Air Alliance Houston’s campaigns aim to address long-standing health inequities experienced by communities of color and working-class neighborhoods that are disproportionately exposed to and harmed by industrial and transportation-related sources of air pollution. Working in partnership with communities and other allies, Air Alliance Houston accelerates action on environmental justice in the Houston area, and has national impacts.

GreenLatinos works to protect the health of Latinx communities and ensure equitable outcomes for communities experiencing the highest pollution burden by advocating for climate policy that supports the prevention of global average temperature rise above 1.5° C. This year, GreenLatinos is advancing action on methane pollution and climate by educating community members on methane emissions and their impacts, working with key decision makers to advance stronger methane regulation, and organizing Latinx leaders for collective climate action.
