Message From Director | Sept. 2023
It’s amazing to think about how much we’ve grown since our beginning in 2017. Time flies, and I’m excited to share some of the big steps we’ve taken together.
First, I want to say how proud I am that more tribes are reaching out to us for help. That’s a sign that what we’re doing is making a real difference. Instead of just giving a handout, we're helping tribes to stand on their own, building skills and knowledge that will last. This means that these communities can create their own solutions, and that’s a big win for everyone.
Now, I've got some exciting news! We're joining hands with other tribes to form a special group. Our goal? To dive deep into the EPA Solar for All program and pursue funds to put solar on hundreds of homes in multiple tribal communities. This program has a lot of potential to help our communities use solar energy, which is clean and good for Mother Earth. But that's not all. We’re also teaming up with different states who want to make sure tribes are part of their plans for a brighter and greener future.
But here's the thing, while we’ve achieved so much, the road ahead is still long. Our mission, our sacred journey, needs more than just our team. It needs you. Whether you're from one of our tribes, a supporter from another place, or just someone who believes in our cause, we need you beside us.
Please, consider joining our fight. Together, we can craft a future where our tribes, and everyone else, live in harmony with the Earth. A future that's bright, clean, and full of promise.
Thank you for being part of our story. Let’s keep the journey going.
