Located in Brighton, New York, ColorBrightonGreen.org is a non-profit organization focused on education and action to reduce our impact on the global climate and to build community through common purpose. The organization began as a committee of the Green Brighton Task Force, which was established by the Supervisor Sandra Frankel in May 2007 to address the town’s climate impact. After the Task Force submitted its recommendations to the Town Board in September 2008, ColorBrightonGreen.org incorporated and became independent of the town government and subsequently applied for non-profit status.
Mission and Vision
The mission of ColorBrightonGreen.org is to develop and implement coordinated programs that engage Brighton residents of all ages, educators, businesses and community organizations in individual and collective actions that protect and improve our environment. Our vision is of Brighton as a community where natural resource conservation is a central part of the culture of its residents, community organizations, businesses, and public and private institutions. A majority of citizens and businesses in Brighton take actions on an ongoing basis to reduce their use of nonrenewable energy and other resources, which ultimately improves the global environment.
- Assure that most people in Brighton know about ways they can be involved in conservation efforts
- Assure that most people are continually taking conservation action
- Build Community through joint action and purpose
ColorBrightonGreen.org is operated by volunteers and has no paid staff. Any expenses are covered by donations. Activities completed to date (including creation and maintenance of the website) and those planned for the near future are done with volunteers. A volunteer Board of Directors decides what activities to conduct and then implements them, or seeks out additional volunteers for implementation.
- We welcome additional ideas and volunteers. Please contact us.
- Visit Us on Facebook: Currently ColorBrightonGreen.org has a Facebook group, and will soon be establishing a Facebook page.
