The Glynn Environmental Coalition is working for a clean environment and a healthy economy by forming partnerships to provide education, information, and technical assistance for citizens of coastal Georgia.
The first efforts of the GEC in 1990 were community cleanups and educational activities, but it quickly expanded to technical assistance and advocacy. We form partnerships seeking a clean environment and a healthy economy for citizens of coastal Georgia. The health and environmental threats have come from pollution of our air, water, land, and seafood. Those without economic resources are the most effected, because they live, work, and go to schools in the most-impacted areas.
While working to recover from our industrial legacy, we strive to restore and protect vital resources for future generations. Past practices have left health threats and damaged fragile estuaries, marshes, and beaches. These unique, natural resources are at the heart of our cultural heritage and a national treasure for all Americans. A third of the remaining salt marsh on the Atlantic coast is within the 100-mile Georgia coast. Through our partnerships, we have identified challenges and worked on solutions by providing education, information, and technical assistance. We help bring the community into the decision-making process through public hearings, comments, and teaching children to take ownership in their communities.
Successful campaigns have resulted in air permits being issued, renegade polluters shut down, and toxic sites being cleaned up. Our actions have identified health threats and have resulted in vastly improved air and water quality. We offer our experience in forming partnerships and solving problems in coastal Georgia to other communities facing similar challenges. Your donation will help us continue to educate those most at risk, work to preserve and protect our coastal marshes and estuaries, and advocate for recovery and cleanup efforts.
