EPA Region 1 Environmental Justice 2017 End-of-Year Report

The Office of Civil Rights and Urban Affairs (OCRUA) and Regional Environmental Justice (EJ) Council are pleased to provide you with a copy of our fiscal year 2017 environmental justice (EJ) highlights. The work described in the attached "Region I Environmental Justice End-of-Year Report," represents only a portion of the significant work performed successfully by staff in support of our statutory mission, of protecting human health and to safeguard the natural environment - air, water, and land.

Region 1 has and will continue to commit resources and advocate for the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people. Moreover, we will continue to strive to reduce overall pollution that may disproportionately impact communities with environmental justice concerns.
