Environmental Justice and Equity

Cela is fundamentally engaged in delivering access to environmental justice in all of its work. We represent low income and vulnerable communities in environmental issues and strive to address equity issues in a wide variety of both site specific and broader policy and legislative contexts. Several of our projects focus specifically on environmental equity issues, conducting research and analysis to elicit the specific aspects of these differential impacts on communities. The media releases, presentations and reports highlighted in this collection demonstrate some of our recent findings in exposing the issues of environmental equity and justice in practice.
