Citizens for a Sustainable Future (CSF) is a 501 C(3) not-for-profit action orientated think tank. CSF was founded in 2012 by a group of scholars and activists seeking creative approaches to the many problems facing their communities. The goal of the early meetings was to identify best practices that would enhance the quality of life in African American communities. As these plans developed eventually a new organization was spawned that would champion the causes of sustainable development and environmental justice for future generations of African Americans.
The original founding members were: Goliath Davis IV, Bruce W. Strouble Jr., Mu-tor K. Flood, and Junius English.
The mission of Citizens for a Sustainable Future is to facilitate and promote sustainable living in African American communities by using research driven solutions that improve the ability of African Americans to pursue environmental justice for present and future generations.
Vision and History
CSF was created in January 2012. The organization developed as a result of scholars and community activists who shared a collective vision to initiate a Black Sustainability Movement that will lead to a future where there exists a network of sustainable African American communities. These communities should be safe, healthy, socially and economically equitable while also maintaining a harmonious relationship with the environment.
