This year, EHC is celebrating 40 years of environmental justice, community empowerment, and leadership. We have won many difficult battles confronting the unjust and racist consequences of toxic pollution, discriminatory land use, and climate change. Unfortunately, our communities are facing challenges as never before: coping with a deadly pandemic, skyrocketing unemployment, lack of decent health care, and continuing systemic racism.

In response, EHC is stepping up our commitment to the leaders and communities we serve and we are reaffirming that we will stand alongside them for the next 40 years and beyond. On August 20, 2020 we celebrated the online edition of our 40th Anniversary Celebration with a livestream of inspirational speakers and words from our leaders and allies.
