Our Mission

The mission of the National Black Environmental Justice Network (NBEJN) is to enable African Americans to secure environmental and economic justice, health equity, political, power, and civil rights and human rights.

Our Strategy

Our organizing strategy encourages active participation by individuals and organizations across spatial location (urban, suburban, and rural), disciplines, economic strata, and generations with the goal of promoting a healthy, just, and sustainable future. NBEJN seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues among African Americans and African Descent populations around the world that are impacted by environmental racism. NBEJN has undertaken a four-point strategy to combat environmental racism that focuses on (1) safe and healthy communities; (2) sustainable development, climate justice, and clean production; (3) civil rights and equal protection laws and policies; and (4) international human rights protection.
