Citizens' Environmental Coalition, New York’s leading environmental health organization was founded in 1983 by people living with the legacy of toxic pollution. Today, CEC has grown into 110 community, labor, faith-based, youth, health and environmental groups and over 14,000 individual members who are united in the understanding that we must rid ourselves and our communities of toxic-waste and holdfast in the notion that no child should be born with toxic-chemicals already in their body.
CEC’s mission is to: Create safe, healthy communities, schools and workplaces through pollution prevention; Empower, educate, and assist people concerned about environmental problems; Strengthen the connection from the grassroots to the statehouse and build effective coalitions; Promote democratic, grassroots advocacy to restore New York’s environment; and Promote corporate accountability and non-violent social justice values.
