Our Goal

Environmental Justice for all populations regardless of race, color, national origin, or income.

Our Vision

Our Focus

The primary focus of the Region 7 Environmental Justice Program is to ensure that as a Region we are fulfilling the mandate given in Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations.

Fulfilling this mandate means ongoing efforts to both ensure that Region 7 is addressing environmental justice in all we do and ensure community awareness regarding environmental issues and the decision-making processes in areas which affect their daily lives. The program maintains its outreach and education activities where grants programs and Agency participation in community activities have produced tangible environmental benefits for low-income and minority communities.
