About usEMEAC works across section and with multi-issue struggles because the families we work with are forced to take on multiple systems of oppression in their everyday lives. Many Detroit families live in poverty, not of their own making, but because our system has failed them. These families have the firsthand experience and insight into how public policy, attitudes and systems must change to raise all families to prosperity. At the core of EMEAC is our resolve to follow the lead of the community. Our organization is comprised of community members that have been trained through our political education and organizing workshops and rose to leadership. For over forty years, EMEAC has been working in the community, in the courts, in township halls and in schools. We played a role in the enactment of most of Michigan's environmental laws. Our work is rooted in the principles of environmental justice and in community organizing. We work to fight environmental racism and extreme energy while building community solutions and resilience inside Detroit: the community where we live, work and play.
