Partnerships for Change
NRDC has worked with many community-based organizations to defend people's right to a safe and healthy environment.
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.
|Fighting for Green Space||Cleaning Up Anacostia|
|Shielding Children from Pesticide Exposure||Improving|

|Working for Justice in West Harlem||Forcing Nuclear Waste Clean-up|
