Climate Justice

Climate change affects all of us, but it hits low-income communities first and worst.

Toxic-Free Neighborhoods

Low income communities of color have long struggled with racist land use practices that diminish their health, safety and quality of life.

Community Land-Use Planning

Under California law, all municipalities are required to complete General Plans which provide a blueprint and long range vision for cities.

Clean Air

For many years, residents in the community of Barrio Logan complained about the increasing heavy-duty diesel truck traffic on their neighborhood streets.

Border Environmental Justice

EHC reduces toxic pollution caused by maquiladora industries in Tijuana and promotes fair trade and globalization for justice.

Through leader development, organizing, and advocacy, Environmental Health Coalition improves the health of children, families, neighborhoods and the natural environment in the San Diego/Tijuana region.

Our major campaigns focus on green energy and jobs, healthy kids, border environmental justice and toxic-free neighborhoods. The cumulative impacts of environmental, social, political and economic vulnerabilities that affect the quality of life in our target communities weaves a common theme in our work.

Since 1980, we have defended people's rights to live in healthy and sustainable communities. We empower people, organize communities and achieve justice.
