How We Work.
The Coalition for Environmental Rights is guided by a small steering committee composed of organizations representing key constituencies seeking to achieve environmental rights, with support from highly-engaged volunteer advisors and coordinators. In addition, we are supported by national and local member organizations, representing diverse interests, who share our common vision and commit to supporting the coalition in pursuit of its goals and objectives.
We welcome new member organizations.

We invest in environmental education for all people, particularly for and by racialized people. We fight against racism and promote diversity. Finally, we foster green jobs and eco-entrepreneurship in black communities.
