White House’s Environmental Justice Tool Still Comes Up Short, Advocates Say
Route Fifty | March 6, 2023
“Race has a huge impact on environmental justice. And there’s just no way to look at environmental justice that pretends that race is not important,” said Bob Dean, the chief strategy and program officer for the Chicago-based nonprofit Center for Neighborhood Technology. Without using race as a factor, the administration needs to find ways that better account for the types of disinvestment and environmental hazards that people of color face, he said.
The current tool does identify many of those neighborhoods, Dean explained, but it does not prioritize them above other areas that qualify.
