While we understand that climate change impacts everyone, it more adversely affects communities of color and those with socioeconomic risk factors. Bedford 2030 will seek to bring more diverse voices to our movement and to go deeper – both in our own backyard and in our region – to ensure that we are reaching and involving a diverse segment of community members and offering solutions that are accessible to all. Bedford 2030 is committed to positive change and to working towards clean air, clean water, and a healthy environment for everyone.

We helped the Town acquire NYSERDA Clean Energy Communities (CEC) Grant Funding to provide covered bike parking at the train stations. These bike racks increase accessibility and incentive to drive less by providing safe & protected parking for bicycles. 
We provide free resources to the community through our Take It Or Leave It Shed, giving new life to previously unwanted household items.

Environmental justice, the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental programs, regulations, and policies, is a CAP2030 imperative.
