    Policy & Legislation

Earthjustice’s hard-won legal victories are often targeted by industry for legislative rollback. The Policy & Legislation team works on Capitol Hill to strengthen environmental laws and uphold our legal accomplishments.

Signature Work

When Earthjustice wins big environmental victories in court, anti-environmental interests in Washington, D.C., often try to have Congress to overturn those court decisions through legislation.

To solidify the enduring impact of our legal victories, the Policy & Legislation team in Washington, D.C., works with champions in Congress to craft legislation that supports and extends our gains. The Policy & Legislation team works to protect and strengthen federal environmental laws and to prevent legislative attempts to undermine environmental progress.

Earthjustice promotes citizen enforcement of environmental laws and fights for new safeguards that go beyond current standards. The Policy & Legislation team advocates for stronger laws safeguarding children from toxic chemicals, protecting clean water standards, and tackling climate change, among many other things.
