The ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE GROUP (EJG) at the University of Michigan
is a multicultural, multidisciplinary student group dedicated to promoting
environmental justice for communities affected disproportionately with
environmental burdens, especially communities of color and low-income.

themselves and their children.  We are a resource for communities and
students empowering themselves to address environmental injustices.
