The Environmental Law and Justice Clinic ("ELJC") and the Women's Employment Rights Clinic ("WERC") of Golden Gate University School of Law developed this community guide to assist you and your community in addressing environmental pollution and occupational safety concerns. It explains several state and federal environmental and workers' safety laws, and provides an overview of several governmental agencies responsible for enforcing these laws. We hope you will find this community guide useful, such as when you want to identify and contact a governmental agency, obtain information about an environmental hazard in your neighborhood or workplace, participate in an environmental decision-making process, or voice your concerns on a particular environmental issue at a public hearing.
