Coronavirus Updates

The Deep South Center for Environmental Justice (DSCEJ) has shifted to working remotely to keep our staff safe and healthy by honoring our social distancing responsibility to help limit the spread of COVID-19. We are doing all that we can to ensure that our office closure has minimal impact on our ability to serve our partner communities. As we continue to advocate for a healthy, safe, and just environment, in the next few months, we will conduct meetings and trainings online.

We are closely monitoring recommendations from our national, state and local government and public health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our staff can be reached via email. You can find our team on our website at Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
