About this organization






Everyone in this region deserves to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and live in a healthy environment. The Southern Environmental Law Center uses the power of the law to protect the South's environment and all the people who depend on it for their health and wellbeing. For 33 years, SELC has used the power of the law to protect the environment in six southern states: Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. Our programs focus on clean energy and air, clean water, forests, coasts and wetlands, and land use transportation. SELC has 80 attorneys that work in Congress, state legislatures, regulatory agencies, and the courts to defend our region’s natural resources and special places, and to ensure their long-term protection.
