Addressing Environmental Justice in PA

PA-EnvironmentalJustice

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.

There is no shortage of examples throughout Pennsylvania where low income and communities of color bear a disproportionate environmental burden of pollution from environmental racism.

Take Action! A package of bills was introduced in the General Assembly to help address this issue and uplift Environmental Justice communities.
