This resource was launched January 10, 2022. It was last updat­ed July 26, 2023.

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.
