Who we are

We are a coalition of local organizations advocating for environmental justice and who are dedicated to exposing the damage caused by pollution in our communities. We believe that all Fort Worth residents have a right to fresh air, clean water, safe streets, and healthy neighborhoods. We believe that corporations that pollute and put human lives at risk must be held accountable, and have no right to continue their operations.

What we want

An end to the encroachment of industrial development in residential areas. Districts that have an established residential population should have the ultimate say in how their community develops, not corporations that have no vested interest in the health and safety of residents.

Current projects

Holding the City Accountable

Combating Industrial zoning in Echo Heights. What’s going on in Echo Heights is abhorrent, and completely unacceptable. Commercial trucking and other industries have been taking over the neighborhood, subjecting the community to devastating pollution and harsh chemicals. A recent effort was thwarted, thanks to the work of local organizers and community members, to prevent new industry expansion directly across the street from an elementary school which has been there for decades.

These are the kind of dangerous developments we can expect to see continue if the city is not held accountable.
