ClimateXchange: Structuring State Governments to Prioritize Environmental Justice
July 19, 2022 @ 1:00 pm MDT
As a core tenet of the environmental movement, environmental justice (EJ) continues to evolve in the state policy arena. However, states are realizing that as justice and equity policies progress, their government structure must also evolve to meet these new challenges.
Embodying environmental justice principles requires re-structuring key features of state government such as staffing, authority, resources, representation, and procedures. This “EJ Bureaucracy” varies immensely across the states, thus there are important questions to ask and practices to share in order to make sure that our state governments truly prioritize environmental justice.
Join Climate XChange’s own research team to discuss what exactly “EJ Bureaucracy” is, what recent state models exist, and what questions to ask when evaluating your state.
