The purpose of the blog to keep the public updated on environmental issues in underrepresented communities.
The Environmental Law Initiative // New York Environmental Law and Justice Project is a non-profit public interest organization which counsels and represents groups and individuals concerned with the preservation and improvement of community environmental conditions. We believe it is possible for people to protect themselves and their communities from dangerous and burdensome environmental hazards through knowledge and effective and affordable legal avenues. Environmental justice should be available to all people regardless of race, gender or age. By utilizing our “commando” law techniques we are able to effectively promote the interests of the environmental community.

One thought on “About”
Joel, if you’re checking this, this is Susan Taylor, from the NYC chapter of the Guild in years past. I’m now on the city council in Newport, RI, and we are dealing with the state and the feds over a new highway design that threatens to continue the isolation of the low income community in the north end of the city (I know, people think of gilded age mansions in connection with Newport and not our incredibly vibrant and diverse low income community….) I would love to have a conversation to try to get an understanding of the fed process now that we’ve been presented with a “Draft EA” for the project. How should we package our comments during this 30 day comment period for maximum impact?
