About the Work
WE ACT’s mission is to build healthy communities by ensuring that people of color and/or low income residents participate meaningfully in the creation of sound and fair environmental health and protection policies and practices.
WE ACT needed a place on the web that told the organization’s incredible story and helped organize their many members around their public actions. WEACT’s new site utilizes dynamic content “hubs,” with a custom CMS built to dynamically build sections which combine and collate related content from across the spectrum of their advocacy. Tying in third-party integration with organizing and membership tools, the new site provides WEACT with a new toolset for activism in today’s critically important activist environment.
We were happy to work with West Harlem Environmental Action on the overhaul of their new flagship website. It’s a continuation of our great work on websites for nonprofits!
