East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice green and white flag logo

East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice (EYCEJ) is a community-based organization that works to facilitate self-advocates in East and Southeast Los Angeles and Long Beach. EYCEJ prepares community members to engage in the decision-making processes that directly impact their health and quality of life.

Through grassroots organizing and leadership-building skills, EYCEJ works to enable under-represented communities to be heard and make real change happen.

Using a plan of action built on research-based information, workshops, and trainings to empower our communities, we are able to influences policy change, policymakers, and agencies that can institute healthprotective environmental justice policies that are in the best interest of local, regional, and statewide residents. For more information, check out their web site: eycej.org.
