When GJEP identifies a group or organization whose non-for-profit work closely aligns with our mission, we may support their important work by becoming a fiscal sponsor. This helps them minimize bureaucracy so they can focus on their crucial work for ecological and social justice, forest protection and/or human rights.

North American Megadam Resistance Alliance
NAMRA’s mission is to protect rivers and their communities by resisting megadams and associated transmission corridors. NAMRA seeks to debunk the myth that Canadian hydropower is “clean” and renewable energy, shut down markets for dirty Canadian hydropower by stopping transmission corridors to the U.S., and promote alternatives to fossil fuels and megadam hydropower– such as conservation and efficiency.
Center for Grassroots Organizing
The Center for Grassroots Organizing is a project for helping organize mass social movements. This means space where people from different fields can spend time together, share resources, get creative, and build collaborative strategy. A place for the explosion of radical youth leadership to feel at home and skill-up as organizers. A place to apply our dedication to racial justice with boots on the ground and proactively sharing resources. A place for all of us to connect with the farming and agricultural community, to reconfigure our relationship with our unstable food systems in readiness for the impacts of climate change. A place to work on defending the natural world from the impositions of the corporate world.
Save the Pine Barrens
Save the Pine Barrens advocates for accountability and transparency as a route to raise awareness and educate the community about what it takes to make change happen. They are working to save the Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens from mining and industrial development.
“Also known as Pitch Pine/Scrub Oak Barrens, pine barrens are a globally rare habitat type, with Massachusetts supporting the third largest example in the world (behind New Jersey and Long Island). The largest block of pine barrens habitat in Massachusetts is in Plymouth, Carver and Wareham, overlying the Plymouth/Carver sole-source aquifer. Protection of barrens habitat will also help protect the recharge area for the largest groundwater reserve in the state.” Southeastern Massachusetts Natural Resources Atlas, 2004.

Vermont Street Medics Hotline
The Vermont Street Medics Hotline is a community-led, collectively organized volunteer network based out of central Vermont. We are street medics, clinical herbalists, medical professionals, midwives, first-aid providers, and community organizers. The collective is currently working to support people in Central Vermont without reliable shelter who have questions about coronavirus, general health concerns, and access needs (e.g. to transportation to coronavirus testing appointments, access to food and other basic needs). Our services include: a call-in hotline for coronavirus questions and general wellness needs; access to rides to COVID-19 testing sites; food and supply distribution to houseless community members temporarily sheltered in hotels or camping out; and ground support coordination with other organizations working with the houseless community. We offer this hotline and our ground-support services in the spirit of the Good Samaritan law.
