Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice
Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice —or DWEJ for short —is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the environmental and economic health of the Detroit community. 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.
