  • Legal consultation with community groups, organizations, and campaigns in the Bay Area on a diversity of EJ issues
    *Supporting and/or initiating impact litigation in partnership with EJ organizations and frontline communities
  • Providing legal defense for EJ activists and organizations against state repression
  • Support EJ legislation and policy work at local and statewide levels through legislative and legal analysis
