For the Environment – Against Unnecessary Development
America’s Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and other critical environmental laws are only as good as their enforcement. Sadly, lax enforcement, regulatory abuse, preoccupations with profits and, in some cases, sheer negligence continue to expose land, air, water, and especially people to damage and destruction. Poor and working class communities are particularly vulnerable.
What Advocates for Justice Does
Advocates for Justice use citizen suits and other litigation to force compliance with the environmental laws and make polluters pay. We will challenge inappropriate development, both commercial and residential, not only rural areas, but right in the middle of cities.
