Founded in 1999, Midwest Environmental Advocates (MEA) serves as Wisconsin’s first and only non-profit environmental law center.
MEA’s mission is to provide high quality legal services that support a multicultural, grassroots social movement; build local leadership; and implement innovative solutions to environmental problems.
The three strategies of MEA are to:
1. Provide legal, organizing, and technical assistance to community groups fighting for clean air, clean water, and clean government.
2. Lay the foundation for long-term systems change by increasing the number and effectiveness of local leaders across the state.
3. Build multicultural coalitions (including labor, farmers, Native Americans, and others) to work for a sustainable environment.
