In 1988, community activists joined forces with environmental litigators to fight for landmark changes in Northern Manhattan’s air quality. Nearly 30 years later, we have not stopped fighting for justice.
WE ACT combines the voices and interests of our growing membership base with the legal and policy expertise of staff and partners to fight for environmental policy and justice at a local, state, and federal level. Today, WE ACT’s federal office is the only environmental justice organization located in Washington, D.C.
Our mission and methods are always driven by the communities who are most impacted by environmental racism.
