Above & Beyond

At SELC, we're driven to go above and beyond in our work to protect the air, the water, and the special places of the South. As we continue tackling some of the most important environmental issues across the country, we're highlighting what motivates our attorneys to continually meet such a high standard. Learn more about their work, and consider supporting SELC so we can continue to protect the places we all call home.

“We do work that really matters. We hold ourselves to a high standard, we’re getting results, and I know that Virginia and the South are better places today because of the work that SELC does.”

-Virginia Office Director Sarah Francisco
