About EJHA

About The Environmental Justice Health Alliance

The Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform is a national network of grassroots Environmental and Economic Justice organizations and advocates in communities that are disproportionately impacted by toxic chemicals from legacy contamination, ongoing exposure to polluting facilities and health-harming chemicals in household products. EJHA supports a just transition towards safer chemicals and a pollution-free economy that leaves no community or worker behind. The EJHA network model features leadership of, by, and for Environmental Justice groups with support from additional allied groups and individual experts.

EJHA is rooted in the history of the Environmental and Economic Justice Movement. We are dedicated to chemical safety and supporting safe, healthy, and toxic-free communities where we live, work, play, pray and go to school.

EJHA organizes direct engagement in chemical and industry reform strategies by grassroots organizations in frontline communities to promote environmental justice outcomes. The chemical and energy industries – and their waste, pollution, and health hazards – disproportionately target and impact communities of color, Indigenous, and low-income communities.

EJHA hosts a network of grassroots affiliates from states across the country that are disproportionately impacted who are working towards policy reform initiatives to reduce toxic chemicals that leaves no community or worker behind. The communities we work with live along the “fenceline” of industry, experience cumulative impacts from multiple hazards at high rates, and have the least resources to influence and respond. The EJHA network model features leadership of, by, and for environmental justice groups with additional engagement and support from national allies working at the intersections of toxins, energy, and climate issues.

“It’s a privilege to work in partnership with the EJHA network. These are the life-changers, dream-shapers, world-shakers.”
