Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Environmental Law and Policy Center of the Midwest

Chicago, Illinois



The center is a leading environmental public-interest and legal-advocacy organization in the Midwest. This three-year grant funds a campaign to reduce diesel pollution from trains, trucks and construction equipment in Chicago’s rail yards and to galvanize community action in low-income and working-class neighborhoods affected by their proximity to the freight-transport facilities on the city’s South Side.
