The Center for Health, Environment and Justice works to build healthy communities, with social justice, economic well-being, and democratic governance. We believe this can happen when individuals from communities have the power to play an integral role in promoting human health and environmental integrity. Our role is to provide the tools to build strong, healthy communities where people can live, work, learn, play and pray.

Through training, coalition-building and one-on-one technical and organizing assistance, the Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ) works to level the playing field so that people can have a say in the environmental policies and decisions that affect their health and well-being.

The Center for Health, Environment & Justice has members throughout the State of Oregon. We provide education and advocacy services around environmental health risks in conjunction with other Oregon nonprofits. We also provide information and resources to Oregon schools and we hold rallies in support of the health of all.
