DWEJ is a Detroit-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the environmental and economic health of our community.
We envision Detroit as a vibrant urban center where all can thrive in social, economic and environmental health
Since 1994, DWEJ has been a voice for environmental justice in Michigan. Historically, low-income populations and communities of color have suffered disproportionately from environmental pollution. Therefore, DWEJ is dedicated to empowering urban residents to take a meaningful role in the decision-making processes that impact their communities.
We aim to foster sustainable communities by:
Reducing health hazards
Encouraging sustainable development
Influencing economic vitality
DWEJ works with communities to create cleaner, healthier and safer neighborhoods.
