For thirty years, the Environmental Law & Policy Center has served as the Midwest’s leading environmental legal advocacy organization.
For our 30th Anniversary, we’re looking back at our impact and looking ahead to continuing to shape a strong future.
We know that this region is critical for tackling climate change, as the hub of our nation’s transportation and energy networks, and we know that environmental progress and economic development can come hand in hand. So, we have fought for the green businesses, EV manufacturing jobs, and renewable energy industries that are thriving today.
Our multi-state staff has a deep understanding of the Midwest’s people, politics, pollution, and public interest opportunities. Our roots here have been essential for building coalitions to shut down coal plants, hold polluters accountable, and preserve wild and natural places, from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains.
