The Southern Environmental Law Center uses the power of the law to champion the environment of the Southeast. Our team of 70 dedicated attorneys stands up for all the things you love about this special region—clean water, healthy air, mountains and forests, the coast.
By working at the national, regional, state, and local levels, and in all three branches of government, this nonprofit organization is able to do what it takes to get results. SELC strengthens laws, we make government agencies do their job, and, when necessary, we go to court to stop environmental abuses or to set far-reaching precedents.
This year marks SELC’s 30th anniversary. We invite you to join us in celebrating 30 years of impressive results—and in boldly meeting the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the next 30. Together, we can achieve a healthy, sustainable environmental future for our six states.
