A clean, safe, and healthy environment is essential and fundamental for life to thrive, let alone survive. However, access to clean air, water, and all the stable environmental conditions necessary for life, isn’t always guaranteed, especially for certain demographics and communities that have repeatedly been subjected to pollution and other environmental injustices that have impacted their health and livelihoods. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network works to ensure that every community is afforded the same level of protection under the law and that every community, no matter how small, has a voice in the decision-making process. This fairness must also extend to each individual’s ability to access and enjoy our natural resources.
