Protecting the public and environmental health of the Northeast region is one of our top priorities.

Signature Work

The Northeast is one of the most populated areas of the country, and protecting the region's public health is one of our top priorities.

Located in New York, NY with an additional office in Philadelphia, PA, the Northeast regional office halts the discharge of toxic chemicals into drinking water, cleans up abandoned waste sites, and works to fix our nation's broken toxics regulatory system and to lift the secrecy around chemical safety. In addition, our focus on curbing the use of fossil fuels aims to move the Northeast towards a more sustainable energy future.

In the heart of coal country, an old power plant may quit its polluting coal habit, thanks to relentless pressure from Earthjustice attorneys.
