For three decades SELC has been the voice of the South, fighting alongside communities demanding healthy air, clean water, and the protection of the places that make this region so special.
Now, we all face unprecedented attempts to roll back fundamental, longstanding environmental protections. Our communities have never faced greater anti-environmental attacks.
But SELC knows how to persevere and prevail. We'll continue to do what we've always done but with renewed commitment, energy, and passion: use the law and the courts to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the future our children face.
"What SELC stands for, and what we do on behalf of the people and places we protect, are needed now more than ever."
Rick Middleton, Founder and Executive Director
