A healthy and safe environment should be a right, not a privilege. Yet too often, the United States has advanced policies that entrenched segregation, widened economic inequality, and exposed communities of color to environmental hazards.
Advocates for environmental justice are working to right these wrongs and ensure that every person has the right to equal protection from environmental and health hazards in their communities.
I hope you will join me next Wednesday to hear from young advocates working to advance environmental justice for all!
