t.e.j.a.s. is dedicated to providing community members with the tools necessary to create sustainable, environmentally healthy communities by educating individuals on health concerns and implications arising from environmental pollution, empowering individuals with an understanding of applicable environmental laws and regulations and promoting their enforcement, and offering community building skills and resources for effective community action and greater public participation.
Our goal is to promote environmental protection through education, policy development, community awareness, and legal action. Our guiding principle is that everyone, regardless of race or income, is entitled to live in a clean environment.
Some of our current activities (fall 2013) include doing health surveys in highly polluted neighborhoods; organizing community meetings and other events; participating in conferences throughout the Gulf Coast, Southern US, and internationally; making this website so that in the future we can tell you more about what we're doing and how you can participate.
