Over the years, NRDC has partnered with community-based grassroots groups across the country to help protect the health and environment of local communities from harmful industrial development and toxic pollution. Working together, we have reduced children's exposure to toxic pesticides, fought for green space in low-income urban neighborhoods, safeguarded drinking water on tribal lands, and improved air quality in urban areas. Some of these partnerships are highlighted below.
