Eve Gartner is a senior attorney in the Healthy Communities Program at Earthjustice, the nation’s largest non-profit environmental law organization. At Earthjustice, Ms. Gartner leads the team of advocates charged with protecting human health from toxic chemicals. In this role, she has successfully represented a coalition of farmworker organizations in a legal petition to improve protections for farmworkers and their families from pesticide exposures, and defended these protections in court when the incoming Trump Administration attempted to ignore them. She represents a diverse coalition, including firefighters and pediatricians, in a proceeding to ban a toxic class of flame retardant chemicals used in a wide range of consumer products. She is now actively litigating multiple lawsuits against the Trump Administration for undermining laws designed to limit human exposure to unreasonably risky chemicals and to ensure that food is safe from untested chemical additives, and for failing to ban industrial chemicals that are known to be deadly.
Prior to joining Earthjustice, Ms. Gartner spent more than fifteen years leading reproductive rights litigation, including serving as the deputy director for litigation at Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
