DWEJ champions a healthy environment for all people through innovative, thoughtful community and policy actions that put people first. DWEJ has grown from a group of grassroots activists that formed in 1991 and went on to become a major voice recognized locally, statewide, and nationally, for their visionary programs and projects that stimulate economic growth, while also creating sustainable, livable communities.
