The history of Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice has always been deeply intertwined with the battle against racism. At its core, DWEJ is actively committed to and involved in the fight for equality, and more specifically, in elevating the health, social, environmental and economic inequities that communities of color continue to experience to this day. We strive to provide Detroit residents with the tools they need to enact change in their own neighborhoods. We are guided by the Principles of Environmental Justice and will remain relentless in our pursuit to keep the voices of the communities we serve at the forefront of all our efforts.
