Apply for our Climate, Health, and Housing Institute!

How does your environment affect you? We know that people have a huge impact on the health of the environment at all levels, but what impact does the environment have on our own lives? How does where we live determine our health and right to safe environments?

The Climate, Health, and Housing Institute (CHHI) will begin in April 2022.

What is the Climate, Health, and Housing Institute (CHHI)?

The Climate, Health, and Housing Institute (CHHI) is a 3-month institute for BIPOC community to collectively explore the intersections between the forces driving gentrification, health disparities, and the climate crisis and learn about ways to organize and advocate for justice in our communities and how we center decolonization along the way.

The CHHI fellowship will run for 3 months and is intended for BIPOC individuals. Through participation in this program, CHHI fellows will:

  1. Gain a deeper understanding of the principles of Environmental Justice.
  2. Explore ways of empowering themselves and their communities to advocate for safer, more equitable environments.
  3. Engage in conversation about environmental justice issues their communities have identified.
  4. Explore how we decolonize our analysis and activism when it comes to Environmental Justice.

To participate in the program, CHHI Fellows are expected to attend 6 virtual workshop sessions, starting Thursday, April 28th from 6:00-8:30. The recurring meeting time for our 2-2.5 hour sessions will be selected during the first session on April 28th based on Fellow's availability. All sessions will be held virtually on zoom. Participants will receive a stipend of $961.50 for their time and energy in the program.

To apply:

Please fill out this application form and return it by Friday, April 15th at 5pm. For any questions about the fellowship please contact Misha Belden.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
