Environmental Justice is Social Justice

What is Environmental Justice? 

Environmental Justice is defined as "the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, income, national origin or educational level with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies" (Environmental Protection Agency). 

Why should social workers be involved in this movement?

Because Environmental Justice is a fundamental principle  consistent with the principles of social work and social workers have a special concern for and responsibility to oppressed populations who suffer disproportionately with dangerous environmental conditions.
