As a key part of its mission in advancing climate justice, the Carbon Cycle Institute has been exploring how a focus on soils, soil health and soil carbon can address social and environmental justice for rural and urban communities in California (and the US). This report chronicles our exploration of this question, with leading social and climate justice leaders across CA. We encourage you to read the report, as we found a vibrant set of approaches to advance justice, community resilience, and healthy soils. CCI and our partners will be working to identify opportunities to advance these approaches through community-scale projects across CA, and building the local and state policies and economic supports to scale them. Coming to a community near you.

Many thanks to our friends and partners:
Nikki Silvestri with Soil and Shadow, and Eric Holt-Gimenez and Annie Shattuck with Food First. And, of course, Sallie Calhoun at Globetrotter Foundation.
