Literacy for Environmental Justice (or LEJ: it's pronounced "ledge") has been part of Bayview Hunters Point since 1998. When it first started, LEJ focused on community activism. LEJ defines it as the right of all people to have equal access to their basic needs. This includes: Safe energy , Healthy food , Clean air and water ,Open, safe and non-toxic communities. At LEJ, we see these things as basic human rights that's environmental justice. Our conservation and restoration projects on the southeast bayfront shoreline depend on hundreds of volunteers every year — come join us!
