What is Environmental Justice?

Nathanette Mayo
In 1991, the People of Color National Leadership Summit met in Washington, DC and adopted 17 challenging “Principles of Environmental Justice.” Every 3 years, CWFNC’s Board reviews and affirms our commitment to these principles as goals for our own work. The movement recognizes the disproportionate impact of environmental degradation on low-income communities and communities of color, and strives toward justice for all people in the environments where they live, work, and play. See all 17 Principles of Environmental Justice.
