The Environmental Justice Clinic (EJC):
Advocates for and empowers marginalized communities by combining civil rights, environmental, poverty, and public health law with community lawyering principles
Communities of color disproportionately bear the environmental, economic, and health burdens of the development, implementation, and enforcement of the law. Utilizing a community lawyering approach, we seek systemic change for our clients through advocacy, public policy resources, rights education, and transactional assistance.
Our work sits at the intersection of civil rights, environmental, poverty, and public health law, tackling issues in South Florida including climate change, displacement, contamination, environmental health, municipal equity, and more.
Our current work includes several ongoing cases and campaigns where we work closely with our partners and local community organizations.
