About Us

Earthjustice is the nonprofit law firm for the environment, representing—without charge—hundreds of public interest clients, large and small. Earthjustice works through the courts to safeguard public lands, national forests, parks, and wilderness areas; to reduce air and water pollution; to prevent toxic contamination; and to preserve endangered species and wildlife habitat.

When Congress tries to overturn our courtroom victories, Earthjustice's policy experts in Washington, D.C. work to halt legislative backlash and protect environmental laws such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. Since its inception ten years ago, our Policy and Legislation program has focused on the problem of legislative riders and gained a great deal of experience in defeating the worst of these legislative changes.
