GreenRoots is:

a resident-led, grassroots, community-based organization with a track record spanning almost 30 years of achieving significant environmental justice accomplishments and public health victories in Chelsea, East Boston, and the Greater Boston region.

Our mission is to achieve environmental justice and greater quality of life through collective action, unity, education, and youth leadership across neighborhoods and communities.

Our vision is for our communities to thrive as ethnically, racially, culturally, and economically diverse communities whose residents have access to open spaces, parks, and the waterfront and who live in a healthy and safe environment, reversing years of environmental degradation.

GreenRoots evolved from the Chelsea Green Space Committee at the Chelsea Collaborative. Ever since our inception, we have been committed to organizing and protecting our community. Throughout the years, our work in action has looked like restoring acres of urban salt marsh, creating new parks, increasing public access to the waterfront, improving the water quality of Chelsea Creek, and much more.
