The Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE) was founded in 1969 as the St. Louis region’s first independent grassroots organization created to address ecological policy issues. Now in 2019, the group is celebrating 50 years of pro-environment activism.

“I think it’s a really healthy sign that Missourians are engaged in environmental and health policies,” said Heather Navarro, MCE’s director for going on seven years. “This organization has developed a legacy for being a credible source and effective advocate. People really believe in what we do. They trust us.”
