Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit public interest environmental law organization. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health, to preserve magnificent places and wildlife, to advance clean energy, and to combat climate change.
Earthjustice is unique in the approaches we use to achieve our goals and the scale at which we work. Wherever you live, we are fighting for you. In our connected world, each of our goals are deeply intertwined.
- End the extraction and burning of fossil fuels: We expose the true costs of the main driver of climate change and public health ills by enforcing pollution control requirements, blocking new fossil fuel infrastructure, and more.
- Power everything with 100% clean energy: We are cultivating a zero carbon emissions, pollution-free electricity grid by phasing out fossil-fuel power generation, eliminating barriers to renewable energy, and more.
- Secure clean air and water as rights for all: We clean up the air we breathe and the water we drink, by enforcing science-driven laws, compelling agencies to regulate the cumulative impacts of pollution, and more.
