EJII is committed to establishing a comprehensive plan for 2024, focusing on economic, social, and environmental sustainability. Our mission centers around fostering collaborations and promote environmental justice, particularly within underserved communities.


Economic Strategy:

Our strategy is aimed at catalyzing growth opportunities through collaborations with cross-sector entities and community-based organizations. We have identified four primary funding sources: EPA's CPRG, EPA Community Cares, WPSC Energy Innovation Grant Program, and Wisconsin Solar for All.


Legislative Influence:

We regard influencing legislation in Wisconsin as a key priority. We plan to closely collaborate with the Black Legislative Caucus to ensure alignment between our initiatives and their strategic objectives.


Skill Development & Economic Mobility:

We aim to enhance economic mobility by creating opportunities in the sustainability sector. Our focus lies in skill development within Milwaukee's underserved communities.


Environmental Responsibility:

Environmental responsibility remains our core mission. We intend to collaborate with the State of Wisconsin OSCE to develop clean energy access and climate action plans.


Legal Infrastructure:

To build a robust legal infrastructure, we plan to expand our influence and engagement with the Wisconsin Public Service Commission and the EPA.


Strategic Alignment:

We will ensure the effectiveness of our initiatives by refining our strategic alignment through regular discussions and meetings.


Financial Goals:

Our financial goals for 2024 include ongoing fundraising efforts and a detailed budget plan that aligns with our sustainability objectives.
