Our Environmental Justice Program

The crisp mountain air often associated with Colorado is a distant memory for many residents of Commerce City. The heavy blanket of pollution emanating from the nearby Suncor oil refinery has a devastating impact on the health of our community, with children and the elderly facing the brunt of these consequences.

Cultivando's Environmental Justice Program stands tall against this injustice. We are a beacon of hope, fighting for clean air, safe water, and a just transition to a sustainable future for all. We believe that a healthy environment is a fundamental right, and we will not relent until this right is secured for all members of our community.

Our Work

We work with community members, scientists, and policymakers to help protect and educate our community

Community-Driven Advocacy

We empower residents to become leaders in advocating for environmental justice in their neighborhoods.

Education & Awareness

Collaborating with partners, we amplify access to resources and information. Our collaborations are more than partnerships; they're trust-based relationships that advance health equity.


Empowering individuals to have a voice where decisions are made. We open doors for community members to participate in policy development and civic engagement, driving collective power and positive change.

Our Approach

We don't fight alone. Cultivando works hand-in-hand with community members, scientists, and policymakers to achieve our goals. We employ a multifaceted approach that includes:

Data-Driven Advocacy

We conduct rigorous air quality monitoring to collect irrefutable data on pollution levels, empowering our advocacy efforts with scientific evidence.

Empowering Our Community

We provide educational resources and workshops to raise awareness about the health risks associated with air pollution and equip residents with the knowledge and tools to advocate for change.

Policy & Action

We collaborate with community members and policymakers to push for stricter regulations on air pollution and transition the region towards clean energy sources, ensuring a healthier future for generations to come.
