Earthjustice Welcomes President-Elect Joe Biden

New administration is an opportunity to restore safeguards, confront climate change and make environmental justice a reality.

WASHINGTON - Earthjustice, the nation’s premier environmental law organization, congratulates former Vice President Joseph R. Biden on his election to the White House. The organization, which successfully challenged the Trump administration’s relentless efforts to dismantle environmental protections, expressed optimism that a new administration will move the country and the planet towards a just and equitable future.

Earthjustice President Abigail Dillen released the following statement:

“We congratulate President-elect Biden on his election to the highest office in the nation. With his arrival in the White House, we will have an opportunity to rebuild from the wreckage left behind by an administration that spent four years assaulting every protection for our air, water, lands, wildlife, and climate. More importantly, we have a chance to seize this moment and save our planet’s future while making environmental justice a reality for frontline communities.

"Earthjustice will be here to work with this administration -- and, as we have with every administration of every party, we will not shy away from holding our government accountable. This is not the time to rest. Until all people and the planet are healthy and safe, we will never rest.”
