Mission-Driven and Strategic. We don’t let the “perfect” become “the enemy of the good,” but we never let go of the Mission that defines us. Our work is assessed by the results it achieves for Florida’s people, especially communities of color, low-income communities, working families, and other communities that have been and continue to be disproportionately impacted by pollution.
Focused on Environmental Justice. We work to shine a light on and overcome systems and structures that unjustly burden Black, Latinx, and other communities of color with pollution and deny their access to a healthy environment. We acknowledge what we do not know or understand and approach others with deep respect for their life experiences and the challenges they face.
Committed to Integrity. We are consistently open, honest, ethical, and genuine. We mean what we say, and we say what we mean. We break down complex issues and take a systems approach to inform citizens, communities, policymakers, and partners with concise, credible, and fact-based points that get to the heart of the matter.
Problem-solving and Innovative. We are proactive in solving problems and overcoming obstacles. We learn from our mistakes and seek out opportunities to learn and act on new and better ways of getting things done. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and seek feedback.
