2020 Marks the 40th anniversary of Environmental Health Coalition

While it seems nearly incomprehensible to me that 40 years have passed, I’m reminded every day that our racial justice mission to ensure that all communities have clean air and water, healthy homes and are able to thrive is as important today as it was in 1980.

As we reflect on this extraordinary year, our commitment to racial justice has intensified. People of color have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and continue to be brutalized by unjust police practices. EHC stands with communities of color raising their voices and we will continue to empower and organize community members to become agents of change and champions of justice.

As we organize and advocate in new ways, we are also forced to celebrate differently. Our 40th Anniversary Celebration on August 20, 2020 was a digital event for the very first time. The evening was inspiring, reflective, and exciting! Click here to watch the livestream recording.
