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.
