Region 8

Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice (EJ) means ensuring that the environment and human health are fairly protected for all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income. EJ is an integral part of Region 8's mission. Our EJ program works with other EPA staff, states, tribes, and communities to incorporate EJ into program activities and policies.
