Environmental Justice (back to top)

Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies (EPA, 1996). Opportunities for involving historically disadvantaged communities offer different challenges and may require different approaches. This part of the Web site is a resource for those situations.
