Environmental Justice and Public Policy

The Karuna Center is partnering with a number of regional and national stakeholders to facilitate reflective and transformational dialogues with multiple stakeholders, — environmental justice advocates, tribal representatives, local businesses, public policy decision makers — to design and implement collaborative, sustainable climate change efforts. We are also working closely with indigenous communities around issues of environmental justice, climate crises, and health equity in California and the Alaskan Territory.

Resilient Rural Communities 

The Karuna Center is implementing Community Resilience and Engagement dialogues designed to create a critical mass of neighborhood and regional leaders with the capacity to effectively advocate for practices, programs, and policies that strengthen the resilience of communities in Northern California. We are helping to facilitate ongoing convening of key stakeholders and community representatives, build communities of practice, and advocacy supporting multi-sector intersections of all ages and cultures.
