Fighting for Healthy Communities

Baykeeper supports communities fighting for clean water and air

Baykeeper has a long history stopping pollution and promoting environmental health, which supports our local communities and advances equity and justice around the Bay Area.

Baykeeper's scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates have worked in coalition with neighborhood organizations to stop polluters in every region the Bay, including Bayview Hunters Point, Richmond, Oakland, the South Bay, and Delta. Baykeeper has won over 200 Clean Water Act lawsuits that protect the Bay and the Bay Area from industrial pollution.

Since its inception, Baykeeper has generated hundreds of millions of dollars to improve the quality of life in Bay shoreline communities, and to support the work of organizations within communities disproportionately affected by pollution.
