Tindakan supports solutions-based endeavors that focus on ecological & social justice causes, worldwide.
Tindakan Makes Change Happen
We fight to bring the needs of diverse communities into solutions. Historic and systemic barriers stand between many of our communities and access to a healthy environment. We are fostering equity, diversity, and inclusiveness to ensure all are fully represented.
Communities of color and those with lower incomes disproportionately live without clean air, clean drinking water, or safe places to work.
Climate change is already impacting people, the economy, ecosystems, animals, and habitats. We’re seeing hotter temperatures, drier summers; larger, more devastating wildfires; and shorter winters. It’s critical that our leaders prioritize combating climate change and acting for communities that bear a disproportionate burden of environmental pollution.

Environmental Justice Is Necessary For The Full Flourishing of Human and Non-human Nature.
The urgency is real and needed.
Structural inequalities lead to environmental disruptions affecting our food, soil, water, climate, work, and production and consumption systems that harm the most vulnerable. At the same time, those with class, ethnoracial, gender, and other privileges have greater access to environmental goods, such as pollution-free neighborhoods, healthy food, safe workplaces, and green spaces.
This is the essence of injustice, and we must create spaces to counter these outcomes and address their root causes in our institutions.
A direct connection and responsibility to the land comes first and foremost. With a commitment to regenerative ecology as our central operating principle, we have created a very particular niche for ourselves. We focus on building and maintaining relationships with landholders, family farms and an array of diverse community stakeholders.
WE DID IT!
Save Colorado's Prairie Dogs and Tindakan in concert with so many tenacious and devoted resident wildlife advocates from Longmont and surrounding communities and others who care about our natural heritage, saw to it that an ordinance providing greater protections for prairie dogs and by extension the myriad of flora and fauna species that depend on this beautiful animal, are given greater protections and a better opportunity at being relocated, should development encroach on their homes.
It wasn't easy, but we stuck together and because of five amazing city council members- Aren Rodriguez, Polly Christensen, Joan Peck and Tim Waters including the Honorable Mayor Brian Bagley; with a 5-2 vote, an ordinance that does not unfairly inhibit any one party was put into law! This ordinance ensures social responsibility is adhered to while eliminating undue burdens to the City, developers and wildlife advocates.
Since the ordinance was enacted, over 1,000 prairie dogs from 3 different colonies have been humanely relocated to new habitat.
