The Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition (MEJC) is a statewide coalition working to achieve a clean, healthy and safe environment for Michigan’s most vulnerable residents. MEJC works to achieve this goal in alignment with the EJ Principles through increasing knowledge, enhancing networks and taking action for systemic change. We are a membership-led organization, with over 40 individual and organizational members from diverse skill sets, backgrounds and identity. MEJC convened in 2011 to grow the environmental justice movement in Michigan. Every two years MEJC hosts the EJ Statewide Summit to bring together local EJ groups, leaders of color, and tribal members to strategize and amplify their fights. We recently hosted our 5th EJ Summit, led a major campaign in energy democracy, and provided movement education and leadership development opportunities to the community. We continue in 2023 to push for a bold and ambitious climate agenda in Michigan.
