With more than a hundred attorneys in offices across the country, Earthjustice pursues three key goals to secure a just, flourishing world:
Our nation’s laws protect the magnificent natural spaces and wildlife we have inherited from previous generations. Earthjustice enforces those laws to protect what we know to be irreplaceable wildlife and wild places, for this and future generations.
We fight for a future where children can breathe clean air, no matter where they live; where products in our homes are free of toxic chemicals; and where all communities are safer, healthier places to live and work.
CLEAN ENERGY & A HEALTHY CLIMATE
Earthjustice’s legal victories strengthen the rise of clean energy, laying the groundwork for the systemic change we must see. At stake is nothing less than our children’s—and our planet’s—future.
With the generous investment of our members, we are pursuing nearly 400 active legal cases.
Earthjustice’s decades of success are thanks to strong partnerships with hundreds of organizations—and hundreds of thousands of passionate supporters.
Because we believe as you do.
These are fights we cannot lose.
