Environmental Justice

With the 1987 publication of Toxic Wastes and Race by the United Church of Christ’s Commission for Racial Justice, the existence of a nationwide pattern of disproportionate environmental risk based on race was demonstrated for the U.S. This evidence challenged the U.S. environmental movement to recognize its tendency to ignore issues of race, class and gender in setting agendas for social action. The work of the Center for Science and Environment. expanded the challenge to include North-South patterns of environmental injustice. CEEP has sought to contribute to this growing area at all scales, from involvement with grassroots movements to participation in national and global policy debates.
