You Don't Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One

Majora Carter simultaneously takes on public health, poverty and climate change adaptation as one of the nation’s pioneers of environment-centered urban renewal and green-collar job training and placement. She began her remarkable career trajectory by founding Sustainable South Bronx in 2001 to bring community-building jobs and a healthier environment to the neighborhood in which she grew up. Her passion for achieving environmental equality through economically sustainable projects informed by local needs quickly spread. Carter’s game-changing work has earned her numerous honors, including a MacArthur genius grant.
