The Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE) is Missouri’s independent citizens’ environmental organization for clean water, clean air, clean energy, and a healthy environment. Believing that fairness, justice, and beauty will conquer greed, inequality, and violence, MCE also believes that the gifts of air, water, and land are meant to sustain all life and that these resources should be available to serve the public interest now and in the future, not sacrificed for short-term gain. MCE works to protect and restore the environment through education, public engagement, and legal action.

Since 2013 MCE has partnered with the Franciscan Sisters of Mary to advocate for the complete removal of the radioactive wastes illegally dumped in the West Lake Landfill not two miles from the sisters’ homes and offices.

MCE is also the parent organization to the St. Louis Food Policy Coalition and the Food Equity Advisory Board, which work to collaboratively address the challenges and inequities of our local food system.
