About Us

Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) is a place-based nonprofit organization which for eighteen years has strengthened at-risk communities and the natural environment in southeast San Francisco. Our core activities revolve around connecting marginalized youth and their communities with nature by getting their 'hands on the land' through experiential environmental education, service-learning, 'green-collar' workforce development, and outdoor recreation. Our operations include a native plant nursery which serves as a main tool in our educational programming, work experience development, and financial security for our organization as we grow native San Francisco plant species for projects in the Bay Area.
