A Change In The Nature Of Environmentalism?
"But under the radar, newcomers are taking up the cause where it matters most to them: at home. Their activism has spawned a bevy of smaller, local-issue green groups whose growth is surging, according to a new analysis of Internal Revenue Service data... Growth in the environmental movement [is] shifting away from large-scale national groups.. The fast-growing environmental justice movement that began in the 1980s, was joined in the 1990s by the relatively new 'ecoreligious' and 'ecohealth' groups [and] span demographic and racial differences and often eschew traditional labels."
