Defending the health of our communities, air and water

What you should know

People have a right to be healthy and safe where they live, work and play. Legacy pollution and corporate irresponsibility have left vulnerable communities -- typically low-income communities of color -- overburdened with health and environmental impacts. Public Citizen works to end this injustice by phasing out polluting industries, holding polluters accountable and ensuring strong public protections for our health and environment.

Our Work

We work to ensure that violators of pollution safeguards are held accountable.
