No matter where we come from, the colour of our skin or what’s in our wallet, we all want clean air to breathe, fresh water to drink and a safe, healthy environment.
But right now, some communities are bearing the brunt of environmental harms like pollution and climate damage. Often people who have done the least to contribute to environmental damage are feeling its impacts the most – like First Nations communities, people with low incomes, recent migrants and people of colour, those with disabilities or who are young or elderly.
At EJA, we are pursuing environmental justice by empowering impacted communities with legal and advocacy support.
We provide legal and advocacy support to communities experiencing disadvantage who are facing environmental harms.
Holding government and polluting industries to account
We represent vulnerable communities fighting environmental harms in the courtroom.
Securing environmental justice
We set vital legal precedents and drive systemic change to protect the right to a healthy environment for everyone, equally.
