EJCW works within a Community-to- Capitol framework connecting the most pressing needs of our disadvantaged community partners to our network of partners and agencies statewide. You’ll find us organizing and educating on the front lines as well as advocating and counseling behind-the-scenes.  Our aim is to effectively influence the intersections of water justice and environmental justice, community health, and human rights issues from community to global levels.

Our work is rooted in the communities most affected by environmental injustice. Issues and solutions are identified through our regional chapters and statewide work groups. We are positioned  in the Capitol where we connect communities with state agencies so that we can, as a coalition, bring about change multilaterally through advocacy, education, training, litigation, community organizing, capacity-building, and by providing technical assistance.

EJCW offers a low-cost fiscal sponsorship service to small and upstart organizations that wish to operate as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, but for which it does not make sense in the near- or even long-term to create a new 501(c)3 organization.
