Environmental Democracy Project Holds Corporate Polluters and Greenwashers Accountable.
EDP is a California non-profit corporation. 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. The most vulnerable members of our society are the most impacted by pollution caused by wealthy corporations, such as agribusiness and the fossil fuel industry. We are committed to fighting for environmental democracy on behalf of the 99%. We are also committed to combating the greenwashing of consumer products by corporations seeking to exploit the public's desire for organic, healthy, and environmentally beneficial products.
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.
FRONTLINE MOVEMENT BUILDING
We engage in environmental and social justice advocacy at the local and state levels. We partner with frontline organizations fighting for environmental justice and democracy, especially in California’s Central Valley.
