Check out our 2022 Impact Report below to learn more about our collective impact since our inception (5 years ago!), recent big wins, and our goals for the future!

For this report, we worked alongside a Capstone Team from CU Boulder's Masters of the Environment Program (thank you Emma, Lily, and Malinda) written in reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. While this is our first year reporting, our goal is to publish an impact report annually to showcase the previous years' accomplishments as well as share cumulative achievements.  

Have any ideas for how we can make the report better in the future? Let us know.
