Groundwork USA is the only network of local organizations devoted to transforming the natural and built environment of marginalized communities — a national enterprise with local roots, working at the intersection of the environment, equity and civic engagement.
We are committed to:
- pursuing a future in which everyone’s neighborhood environment is green, healthy and resilient,
- undoing legacies of poverty and racial discrimination, and
- breaking the trend of widening disparity between communities that are enjoying a renaissance and communities that are experiencing disinvestment, neglect, and deepening poverty.
We believe in leading by doing. We seek to broaden participation by producing tangible improvements in people’s lives, staying positive, and learning at every step of the way.
