Environmental Justice is the essential peer-reviewed journal exploring the equitable treatment of all people, especially people of color, low-income populations, and indigenous peoples. The journal specifically explores the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies, as well as equitable and fair access to healthy housing, safe water, transportation, food resources, natural resources, health care, and economic opportunity. Published bimonthly, Environmental Justice covers the adverse and disparate environmental burdens, exposures, and health impacts that affect marginalized populations all over the world. The journal facilitates open dialogue among the many stakeholders involved in environmental justice struggles, including activists, communities, nonprofit organizations, academia, youth, government, and industry.
