The California Environmental Justice Alliance is just released their 4th Environmental Justice Scorecard today for the 2016 Legislative Session — the only one in the state to assess how well California’s elected officials supported actions to address environmental issues that impact low-income communities and communities of color.

For the first time ever, CEJA has also released an Environmental Justice Agency Assessment including EJ Principles for policy implementation, with an analysis of how state regulatory agencies, which play such a powerful role in protecting low-income communities and communities of color, can improve their commitment to and inclusion of environmental justice within policy implementation.

As environmental justice communities brace to be hit first and worst by attacks under the Trump administration, it is more important than ever that we lift up the values and principles that we must see from all our elected official in this new era.
