The Environmental Health Coalition (EHC), is a social change organisation[1] in the San Diego/Tijuana region.[1]

History[edit]

Environmental Health Coalition was founded in 1980 as a Coalition Against Cancer. The fields they now accompany include; environmental health and justice, social justice, human rights, and environmental sustainability.[2]

EHC’s strategies have led to first-ever achievements, including:

  • The first state ban on lead-contaminated candies[3]
  • The first bi-national toxic site cleanup[4]
  • The first municipal General Plan in California to include environmental justice goals[5]
