Facing aggressive actions in Washington, D.C., aimed at gutting environmental protections, the Southern Environmental Law Center is determined to defend the fundamental laws and policies that have been put in place to safeguard the quality of our air, water, and natural treasures.
SELC has deep expertise in law and policy, local presence throughout our six states, and a 30-year track record of working successfully in both friendly and hostile times. This organization is uniquely positioned to be the vigilant, strong, and effective champion of the South's environment—and all the people and communities who depend on it for their health and wellbeing.
“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
