Wonder Woman is pretty fantastic. But at Ecojustice, we have the privilege of working alongside real-life heroes. Our courageous clients inspire us every day, and we can’t wait for you to meet them in our new #EcojusticeHeroes: The Faces Behind Our Cases campaign.

Our clients are heroes for the qualities they embody. Vision. Grit. Courage. Hard work. Leadership.

I think of Marlene Brown and Paula Williams — two ordinary people working to right wrongs and protect their communities. In Nova Scotia, Marlene has spent more than a decade fighting for her community’s right to access to clean, safe drinking water. In British Columbia, Paula has mobilized thousands of people to take a stand against a coal export project that comes with serious health and climate risks.

Both women turned to Ecojustice when their advocacy work hit roadblocks. And your generous support made sure we had the resources to partner with them and take their fights to court.


We are stronger because we work together. Our clients turn to us for legal expertise and solutions.  They remind us of what we’re fighting for — nature, the climate, and our communities. Together, we go to court to enforce the law and bring it in line with our shared values.

But we can’t do it without you.

We need to raise $40,000 before June 30 to ensure Ecojustice can continue helping heroes like Marlene and Paula protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the communities where we live. Can I count on your support?

We’re all in this together. I encourage you to take the lead: Make a gift today to show your support for #EcojusticeHeroes. When you step out in front, I guarantee others will join.


Build the case for a better earth

Thanks to the support of people like you, Ecojustice goes to court to protect what we value most — the air, land and water that sustains all life. Make your gift today and support bold litigation for a brighter environmental future.
