Geographic areas served: We have regional office all over the country and an international office based in Oakland

Programs: Earthjustice works in eight regional offices around the country to protect the environment by enforcing the law. Our offices are working together to combat the causes of global warming, including challenging some of the dirtiest existing and proposed coal-fired power plants and encouraging action on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Offices also focus on local issues aimed at protecting public lands, forests, and wildlife, and defending everone's right to clean air and water. In Alaska, we are working to protect the nation's largest temperate rainforest, the Tongass National Forest. In the Pacific Northwest, our efforts are focused on restoring the runs of wild salmon and steelhead on the Columbia and Snake Rivers and throughout the region. In California, our staff is working to protect Sierra Nevada wild lands and ensure public health in the Central Valley by enforcing the Clean Air Act. In Hawaii we work with native Hawaiian communities to protect endangered species and water resources, and to protect the food supply from the impacts of GMOs. In Florida, we are pushing for a sane state water policy, and public access to the state's waterways. Our two Rocky Mountain offices -- one in Colorado, the other in Montana -- are working to protect endangered species, including grizzly bears and the habitat upon which they depend, and stop fire sale oil and gas leasing of our public lands. Our Washington DC office is leading the effort to clean up air pollution on behalf of the thousands of Americans at risk of developing asthma due to smog and air pollution. And finally, our international program works with attorneys throughout the Americas and the world, building cross-national support for a better, healthier, environment.

Mission:
Earthjustice is a non-profit public interest law firm dedicated to protecting the magnificent places, natural resources, and wildlife of this earth and to defending the right of all people to a healthy environment. We bring about far-reaching change by enforcing and strengthening environmental laws on behalf of hundreds of organizations and communities.

I, as with other people, am no longer supporting organizations where the CEO/President makes in excess of $250,000. I don't make anywhere near that and find it objectionable that such huge portions of my donations are going to one person. I appreciate Charity Navigator bringing transparency to the ... more »

For many years I have given to Earthjustice and I think they serve a very important purpose, but this year I am withholding my contribution because it seems that Trip Van Noppen's salary is increasing at an accelerating rate at a time when most of us have not seen a raise (in fact more likely the ... more »
