Pursuing an Equitable Knowledge-Action Network for Resilience in Texas

This project investigated the role that nonprofits based in Texas with an environmental focus play in securing a future that benefits all state residents. The aim was to understand what kind of environmental work Texas non-profits do, how these organizations are networked to one another, and how they perceive the concepts of equity and resilience. The research team found that organizational orientations towards equity and resilience were highly predictive of organizations being networked to others. Also, most nonprofits are just beginning to tackle intersectional and justice-centered equity.
