The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice supports people working to protect our planet and ensure justice for those who inhabit it.
With a dedicated focus on our core causes, we invest funding in education and scholarship, University-community partnerships and cross-cutting initiatives, such as our current Next Generation Communication Initiative, all through a remarkable endowment from philanthropist and scholar Agnese Nelms Haury.
Our program funds work that improves social justice (justice regarding the distribution of financial, social, political and human capital, opportunities, and privileges within a society) while simultaneously addressing environmental sustainability (such as climate change, pollution, natural resource degradation, and loss of biodiversity).
Learn more about Grant opportunities for University-community partnerships.
We partnered with Mrs. Green's World to share stories of our awarded partnerships that are "moving the needle" toward transformational change in US southwestern communities.
The stories are compiled in a podcast series aimed to inform about socially just solutions to environmental problems implemented by the partnerships The Haury Program supports.
Mrs. Green's World is an educational platform created by self-proclaimed Disruptor for Good Gina Murphy-Darling to inspire ways of living that are healthy, sustainable and socially just. Mrs. Green's World has produced inspirational and powerful content about environmental issues for more than 10 years.
In the latest podcast of the series, Joe Seidenberg, Red Feather's Executive Director, talks about partnering with American Indian nations to develop sustainable solutions to the housing needs within their communities.
