Ecological responsibility in linkage with social justice is what the world needs now. Healthy earth community requires advocacy and action on urgent environmental issues in ways that connect with struggles for social and economic justice. Eco-Justice envisions and values ecology and justice together, since there will be little environmental health without socio-economic justice, and vice-versa. - Dieter T. Hessel

Protect Illinois' National Scenic River!
The Middle Fork of the Vermilion River is one of the most biologically diverse streams in the Midwest, and the centerpiece of a major recreational area in east-central Illinois.  But a proposal before the Illinois EPA could allow 3.3 million cubic yards of toxic coal ash to remain in unlined, leaking pits in the river's floodplain.
