Environmental Health Coalition is dedicated to achieving environmental and social justice. We believe that justice is accomplished by empowered communities acting together to make social change. We organize and advocate to protect public health and the environment threatened by toxic pollution. EHC supports broad efforts that create a just society and fosters a healthy and sustainable quality of life.
The EHC Theory of Social Change describes the conditions that are necessary for authentic change to occur and determines the way EHC work is done. The key elements are: shared political consciousness/ideology, active and involved base of support, strategic analysis and action, and building a strong organization. EHC implements its mission and goals through grassroots campaigns to confront the unjust consequences of toxic pollution, discriminatory land use, and unsustainable energy policies. Through leader development, organizing and advocacy, EHC empowers residents to achieve public policies that improve the health of children, families, neighborhoods and the natural environment in the San Diego/Tijuana region.
