Charlottesville, Virginia, United States




We are the Southern Environmental Law Center — the largest nonprofit, nonpartisan environmental legal advocacy organization rooted in and focused on the South. We are respected for our deep understanding of the places, politics, and culture of the South, and our knowledge of and willingness to do what it takes to get results. With 90 lawyers and a total staff of 170 working in nine offices across six states and Washington, D.C., we champion this beautiful, complex region because we live here and we love it. As lawyers, policy and issue experts, and community advocates and partners, we take on the toughest environmental challenges. And we win. In court, in government, and with our communities, we defend and protect our air, water, climate, wildlife, lands, and the people who live here. Transforming our region away from fossil fuel to clean energy, righting environmental injustice, stopping pollution, and protecting nature — when we solve these issues here, we lead the way for others.
