Citizen Voices Matter

At Midwest Environmental Advocates, we believe that citizen voices matter.

Our communities face some of the most pressing environmental challenges in Wisconsin, and it is the courage and power of people standing together that protect our healthy water, air and land for this generation and the next.

These are their stories.
