Environmental Justice Movement Resources

There are dozens of environmental justice organizations in the US and many dozens more around the world (often as part of what one author calls "environmentalism of the poor"). These are some of the more prominent organizations, but there are many more, including no doubt one in your region, wherever you are.

Environmental Justice Eco-Art
