Environmental Justice

MPHA is committed to building power in communities experiencing high concentrations of pollution, including low-income communities, communities of color, and English as an additional language (EAL) households, to advance and enforce climate policy that prevents and mitigates the public health impacts of environmental racism. Our goals include:

  • Reducing pollution, disease, and public health emergencies in environmental justice communities by passing legislation to increase community oversight in the siting of energy facilities,
  • Increasing legal remedies available to individuals harmed by government policies or actions by expanding state civil rights protections, and
  • Expanding indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring and enforcement in environmental justice communities.
