The Environmental Enforcement Project at Public Justice:


At the Environmental Enforcement Project, we go to court every day to fight climate change, secure environmental justice, and make polluters pay.

We utilize the most powerful tools available to citizens by enforcing our nation’s environmental laws in state and federal court. Our experienced litigators win precedent-setting cases that result in meaningful, transformative change.

We hold polluters accountable by requiring corporations to clean up their act and comply with our Nation’s environmental laws.

Our Work:

You can help. You have the power to stop polluters. Contact us today to confidentially and anonymously make a pollution report. We take your privacy seriously at Public Justice. If you are a whistleblower, please use this form to ensure your report is treated with the highest degree of care and confidentiality. You can also make a donation to Public Justice to allow us to enhance and expand our work. Every step and every dollar matters.

"Public Justice is one of Food & Water Watch’s most important partners in the fight to reform our unjust food system, shut down factory farms that pollute waterways and harm public health, and take on Big Ag’s entrenched corporate power. Their legal team is exceptional, and we always appreciate their support."

Recent Highlights:

  • On May 9, we filed a lawsuit to defend our right to clean water. We’re taking on Simplot for discharging untreated animal waste into the Snake River. Simplot contributes to the dirtying of our waterways, harming our communities and endangering the health of anyone who eats fish from or recreates in the Snake River. Read the full press release here
