Environmental Justice Program

The Environmental Justice program, established by Presidential Executive Order 12898, requires Federal agencies (including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), to ensure that all environmental policies and the disposal of toxic waste do not adversely impact minority and low-income communities.  The common concern is that these communities are exposed to unfair levels of environmental risk arising from multiple sources, often coupled with inadequate government response.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is responsible for helping to ensure that the Service's environmental policies do not adversely impact minority and low income communities. The Region's Environmental Justice Team works closely together to ensure that any identified disparities are corrected, and that the Service's environmental policies are implemented in an equitable manner.
