We work hand-in-hand with frontline communities to remove environmental hazards and secure access to environmental benefits. We act collectively with our community partners to challenge harmful social and political structures, and to improve the environmental conditions in neighborhoods. We support community-led movements using a full range of advocacy strategies to challenge the status quo. We represent frontline communities across the country to challenge polluters that harm health, safety, and quality of life; to close dangerous regulatory loopholes; to open access to information and records; to increase transparency into environmental decision-making and polluting operations; and to enforce federal, state, and local laws meant to protect communities from environmental harms.
The Earthjustice Summer Clerkship position includes a weekly stipend of $1,280 a week, with the average clerkship lasting 10 weeks (approximately $12,800 total). The total stipend amount will be dependent on the extent of a clerk’s ability to secure outside funding. Earthjustice will pay $1,280 a week less the total amount received from other sources. We strongly encourage candidates to pursue outside funding, but the ability to secure outside funding will not be considered as part of the hiring decision. Note the stipend is taxed, so stipend payments are less applicable taxes.
