The Climate Emergency Fund

Aileen provided the foundational grant to establish The Climate Emergency Fund (CEF), an effort to support the activist voices demanding a more urgent response to the climate emergency. CEF acknowledges that the gradual response to the climate crisis has been insufficient. The evidence: since 1990, carbon emissions have gone up by 60% — when environmental groups have been most active.
Activist voices have gained strength in recent months. Young activists led by students like Greta Thunberg and disruptive groups like Extinction Rebellion are demanding that leaders tell the truth about the climate emergency and act accordingly. CEF recognizes that we’ve run out of the time and that the only way to force a change is to disrupt the status quo through legal, non-violent direct action.
