AGs and their staff are bring­ing EJ into their work in order to bet­ter address the inter­con­nect­ed needs of their com­mu­ni­ties and pro­mote equi­table poli­cies. At the same time, the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment has com­mit­ted to mak­ing envi­ron­men­tal jus­tice a pri­or­i­ty across dif­fer­ent actions and poli­cies. Expand­ing AG EJ Prac­tice” is an online resource that high­lights the expand­ing EJ work of attor­neys gen­er­al (AGs) and pro­vides tools to help inform future work. 

The resource:

  • high­lights influ­en­tial moments in EJ history;
  • iden­ti­fies cur­rent fed­er­al poli­cies that imple­ment EJ practices;
  • iden­ti­fies states which have already begun to incor­po­rate EJ into exist­ing programs;
  • pro­vides a detailed look into map­ping tools states are using to iden­ti­fy EJ communities;
  • and shows areas for future work in this impor­tant area of AG activity.
