MEC Members

A coalition of organizations protecting the health
of Michigan's people and environment

When Michigan Environmental Council came on the scene in 1980 it had six member groups, each one a traditional environmental organization dedicated to protecting the state’s natural resources.

Today that membership has grown to nearly 70 and represents a far more diverse collection of organizations, including those devoted primarily to public health, faith, energy, urban justice, land protection, water, and elevating environmental issues in politics.

Recognition that natural resources protection cuts a wide swath through so many public policy areas is a sign of a more mature environmental movement; one whose work improves our lives in many different ways.

The diversity of our allies and members is one of our greatest strengths. When we unite all those interests behind common public policy goals, we demonstrate to political leaders the broad and deep commitment of Michigan residents to protecting the health of Michigan's people and environment.
