Welcome to UPROSE!
We are an intergenerational, multi-racial, nationally-recognized, women of color led, grassroots organization that promotes sustainability and resiliency through community organizing, education, leadership development and cultural/artistic expression in Brooklyn, NY.
Our work intergenerational encompasses a variety of environmental justice, climate justice and public health initiatives.
From the development of the waterfront and local brownfields, to transportation, open space and air quality needs, to educational and youth empowerment campaigns, our team has been fighting for Climate Justice.
UPROSE has achieved multiple groundbreaking accomplishments in community-based planning and development.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy in fall 2012, it has intensified its focus on the adaptation of Sunset Park to the changing climate and to deepening its community resiliency. Come Join Us!
