Environmental justice is the right of all communities to live, work, play, learn and pray in a safe and healthy environment. The Equitable and Just National Climate Platform marks the first time in history when justice organizations and national environmental groups have united around a shared agenda: a healthy climate, clean air and water, high-quality jobs, and an inclusive, just economy for all. We need national policies and investments to realize this vision. Visit our website to learn more.
