Environmental Democracy Project
Using Advocacy, Education, and Litigation to right environmental wrongs.
Take Action Today!
What We Do
We are working to improve the quality of life in East Oakland by collaborating with pollution-impacted neighborhood groups to provide administrative process and legal advocacy training.
We are focused on educating under-resourced citizens of sacrifice zones, AKA environmental justice communities throughout northern and central California, and bringing them into the public conversation on the impacts of pollution, local land use decisions, and zoning regulations on the physical, mental, emotional, and economic health of the Black and Brown communities historically overburdened by pollution.
We are a litigation advocacy group that aims to hold polluters and greenwashers accountable for the implementation of environmental justice principles and to hold government entities accountable for swift and effective enforcement of pollution violations within environmental justice communities.
CHANGING THE FUTURE TOGETHER
We believe that the unprecedented level of environmental degradation and widespread poisoning of human beings by agricultural and industrial pollution is incompatible with basic principles of democracy.
THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX IS OUR MOTTO
We use litigation to ensure compliance with environmental laws and force corporations to adopt more protective practices. We also take legal action to prevent corporate greenwashing.
“The most vulnerable members of our society are the most impacted by pollution caused by wealthy corporations”
“East Oakland gets under-regulated based on the fact that they don't think anybody out here is going to speak up”
