Joe is vice-president of the Board of Trustees of Global Environmental Relief. GER works together with the poor, marginalized, and the powerless to find solutions to human-induced and natural environmental challenges that affect them.
Mission statement: Human-induced and natural environmental impacts are disproportionally affecting the poor, the marginalized and the powerless around the world. Our mission is to work together with these groups – and other organizations partnering with these groups – to provide the technical, educational, and financial assistance they desire to proactively find solutions that address their physical needs, lives and livelihoods in this context. Where timely solutions are unavailable or not implemented, environmental disaster assistance is also a mission-related activity.
