AAEA Los Angeles Office Addresses Hollywood Environment

Thanks to the vision and commitment of volunteers, AAEA has been operating in California via our Los Angeles Office. The L.A. Office of AAEA, founded in 2005, is dedicated to protecting the environment in Los Angeles and California and increasing African American participation in the environmental movement.

The AAEA Hollywood Blog is catching on and Tinseltown is starting to pay attention. It is an exciting time in the entertainment capital of the world, particularly for African Americans. BET founder Bob Johnson just opened a studio, Our Stories Films, that gives a black person the authority and capability to 'greenlight' a movie. This is the first time in history that a black person can approve a movie project. We want to get some of the new players in Hollywood involved in environmental issues. Z is providing us with a platform to accomplish this mission.
