NCEJN is a statewide, grassroots led nonprofit organization. Our central goal is to promote health and environmental equality for all people of North Carolina through community action for clean industry, safe work places and fair access to all human and natural resources.  We seek to accomplish these goals through organizing, advocacy, research, and education based on principles of economic equity and democracy for all people. We focus on the communities who are most impacted by environmental injustice, including people from low-income communities and communities of color.  We use community based participatory research, organize communities, engage media, educate elected and appointed government officials, and advocate statewide for practical solutions to achieve environmental justice. In order to be successful, every campaign at NCEJN depends on organizing with the people most affected by environmental injustices.
