Please Support CEDC Today!
Thank you for considering supporting the Community Environmental Defense Council, Inc. — your help is critical.
As you’ve discovered here on our website, CEDC works on extremely important and complex issues and our primary opponent is Big Oil and Gas – well funded, highly organized and motivated by profit. Our attorneys have to focus long and hard to peel away the layers of complexity and figure out how to use and strengthen our laws to advocate for environmental protection, sustainable development and our human right to clean water, clean air and a healthy environment.
All the legal analysis, meetings, strategizing, negotiations and education work boils down to a simple mission: to protect our environment, promote democracy and justice, and advocate for sustainable development. For every human being. For every plant and animal. For all of us who make up the ecosystem.
Your support is critically needed.

Those of us who understand the complex concept of the environment have the burden to act. We must not tire. We must not give up. We must persist.” Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, founder of the Greenbelt Movement
