How the Protocol Works

The Just Communities Protocol includes three core elements – Pillars, Commitments and Actions – to 1) help communities prioritize racial equity and climate resilience in every phase of the work; 2) set clear goals and targets to determine what success looks like; 3) create a collaborative governing body to drive the work; and 4) build a comprehensive implementation roadmap to guide future development projects, programs, and policies. Each element of Just Communities helps to turn our principles into action and impact.
