The Environmental Justice Page

BlackPast.org with the support of Vulcan, an investment company and philanthropy created by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, now has an environmental justice page. This page brings together all of the entries on BlackPast.org related to environmental justice broadly defined as 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.

The page has six sections: Activists (U.S.), Activists (Global), Organizations, Incidents, Places, and Environmental Studies at HBCUs.

Click on the sections that appear below to see the entries in those areas. If there are entries related to African Americans or people of African ancestry around the world that should be on this page, please send your ideas to this address: quintard@blackpast.org.
