Annual Award Celebration - One People, Una Frontera

Empowering people, Organizing Communities, Achieving Justice

Join us to celebrate communities spearheading crossborder environmental justice and rebuilding the natural world we share. Communities on an international border have the great privilege and responsibility of transcending boundaries and merging two cultures into one unique way of life. One border, shared. One community, together. One people, unified.

Acompáñenos para celebrar a las comunidades que encabezan la justicia ambiental transfronteriza y la reconstrucción del mundo natural que compartimos. Las comunidades a lo largo de la frontera tienen el privilegio y la gran responsabilidad de transcender fronteras y mezclar dos culturas en una forma de vida única. Una frontera compartida. Una comunidad en solidaridad. Un pueblo unido.
