The Environmental Justice Society was officially launched in Brisbane by its inspiration and patron Erin Brockovich. The EJS is a group of powerful lawyers, environmentalists, scientists and doctors who will be working together to take action against companies that pollute. Erin Brockovich has had a number of very successful high profile cases against polluters in the USA.

The EJS aims to inform Australians about their fundamental human right to a safe environment, and to empower them to protect this right if it is being jeopardised.
