ELPC’s multidisciplinary staff of talented and experienced public interest attorneys, finance experts, public policy advocates and communications specialists brings a strong and effective combination of skills to solve environmental problems. Our staff works throughout the Midwest and Great Plains to meet two major needs. First, we provide public interest legal, economic and technical resources devoted to the most important environmental and natural resources issues. Second, we inject a strategic regional perspective as environmental issues are increasingly regional in scope, complex and require coordinated strategies to shape public policy. Specifically:
- ELPC attorneys represent grassroots organizations in taking on the strategically important and precedential cases that have broad national and regional impacts for protecting threatened natural resources.
- ELPC’s policy advocates and finance experts implement breakthrough strategies with diverse business coalition partners to develop new markets for environmentally preferable products and services.
- ELPC’s communications experts and organizers make sure that our persuasive messages reach the public and build coalitions to support our environmental campaigns.
Our staff works out of our headquarters in downtown Chicago, as well as our Washington, D.C., location and regional offices located in Columbus, OH; Des Moines, IA; Minneapolis, MN; Grand Rapids, MI; and Madison, WI. See our Contact Us page for more information.
