Fighting to improve the quality of life
for the communities most affected by the climate crisis.

Advancing environmental equality and justice throughout the state of Nevada


The NEJC is a coalition of Nevada-based organizations united in the fight for intersectional climate action and environmental justice. Through grassroots organizing and policy advocacy, NEJC is working to prioritize justice in the fight to protect our state’s natural resources through a social and racial equity lens, to ensure a just transition away from extractive industries, and liberate frontline communities from environmental hardships.
