Environmental Justice: Home

What is "Environmental Justice"?

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. This goal will be achieved when everyone enjoys:

  • the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards; and
  • equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work.
  • Read the FactSheet about the EPA's Office of Environmental Justice. Still have questions? Contact your Regional Staff.

Home Resource Guide

The Home Resource Guide Community Workshops are a series of trainings that cover topics surrounding oil and gas development, from extraction and production to transportation and waste issues. 

This series is broken up into 4 sections to mirror the Home Resource Guide, which is a binder we put together with resources for you and other community members to keep in your home to have at your fingertips. This binder is freely available at the Braddock Public Library.
