Easterly Supports: Environmental Aid Fund
It seems every day we’re faced with more ramifications of climate change and environmental impacts. Wildfire season used to last only from October to April, but today we’re seeing larger disasters year-round. Flooding concerns are no longer constrained to predicted flood zones. Global temperature rise is causing loss of habitat for plants, animals, and human beings. Now more than ever our daily actions impact the environment, and it is imperative that we continue to educate ourselves and take action to reduce our environmental footprint. Forest fires continue to plague California, forever impacting many different communities and ecosystems. In 2021 alone, roughly 2.6 million acres of land was damaged by a fire in California. Given our high concentration of employees and properties within California, we selected two important organizations to help combat natural disasters in a state that has been disproportionately impacted by extreme weather. As a building owner with sustainability at the forefront of our Company's efforts, Emily Pierce, Director of Sustainability, recommended two charities whose efforts directly support the preservation and protection of the natural environment, with a specific focus on California. These two organizations, The National Park Conservation Association and the California Fire Safe Council, are both recognized and certified 501(c)3 organizations. This Campaign will be open from July 1 – September 30 with a stated goal of reaching $2,500 in employee giving. Further, if we reach 100% employee participation, long time California resident, Mike Ibe will match donations dollar for dollar up to $1,500.00!

Fund Texas Choice
About This Fund: For those who don’t have a car, we provide bus or plane tickets to the nearest clinic which can help you decide whether you can access an abortion, in any state. We work with clinics to offset fuel costs if a car is available for transportation. Any person driving several hours to an abortion clinic needs a place to stay before and after their procedure. Additionally, Texas law requires a 24-hour waiting period for anyone who chooses abortion. This means most abortion appointments are a minimum of 2-days long: one day for the consultation and a second for the procedure. Longer procedures can last as long as 5 days, not counting travel time. We book with friendly hotels vetted by our group or suggested by the clinic. You may have heard about the 6-week abortion ban that went into effect September 1, 2021. This law does not criminalize a person for obtaining an abortion. Rather, those who perform abortions or assist a person in obtaining an abortion after 6-weeks may face civil liability. Moreover, with the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade we fear. Texas laws against abortions with contine. Fund Texas Choice continues to serve pregnant people who are seeking abortion-related services and information in compliance with the law to the best of our understanding. About The Host Organization: Fund Texas Choice envisions a society in which abortion is embraced as healthcare and a human right. As a human right, abortion is equitably accessible across political, economic and social systems so that people have autonomous bodies and futures supported by powerful and vibrant communities.
