For 50 years, NRDC has been suing polluters in defense of our health and environment—no matter what industry or political stripe those polluters represent. And sometimes we sue the president.
Since the Trump administration assumed office in 2017, we’ve witnessed an unprecedented attack on our environmental safeguards: rollbacks to bedrock environmental laws, delayed protections for endangered species, attacks on the science that supports important regulations. But they’ve run into a barrier: us.
NRDC's lawyers are suing at a steady clip to protect our children from pesticides, our pristine wild spaces from fossil fuel extraction, our endangered species from threats by special interests, and our rivers and streams from dangerous pollutants. And we're not stopping anytime soon.
