ALMA Fund

Seeking Shelter

Homelessness is pervasive in San Fransisco, especially compared to other cities. Every night, about 7,500 people are experiencing homelessness in San Francisco: families, youth and people with jobs.

Greener Chicago

In the past, the Chicago River was used as a sewage canal, a shipping canal and, perhaps most famously, a dumping ground for the Union Stockyards. The Great Lakes near the city suffers from elevated pollution levels. Proper conservation and protection are required to protect the natural ecosystems across our region.

ALMA Fund

Greener Boston

Boston residents are already affected by extreme heat, rain, snow and flooding. These trends will only continue.

Due to climate change, a 2016 city report projected sea levels around Boston could rise 36 inches by 2070, affecting some 90,000 residents, 12,000 buildings and potentially causing more than $14 billion in economic losses.

The environment has been over-utilized and under-respected in Boston's history. A generation ago, Boston Harbor was quite literally a dump and the industrial waterfront was suffering from decades of decline and disrepair.

ALMA Fund

Young Readers

Students who can read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are nearly four times more likely to graduate from high school. But barely more than half of 4th graders in the Bay can read at grade-level proficiency or above.

ALMA Fund

Greener NYC

The impacts of climate change are already being felt in the Big Apple. The annual average temperature statewide has risen about 2.4°F since 1970, with winter warming exceeding 4.4°F. Sea levels along New York's coast have already risen more than a foot since 1900, with New York's rate of rise (about 1.2 inches per decade) at almost twice the observed global rate (0.7 inches per decade).

Greener San Francisco

"The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value." -- Theodore Roosevelt

A gap remains at all levels of a women's career journey, from entering high-earning fields like technology, to equal pay and earning promotions. Women still earn 78 cents to a man's dollar.
