Environmental Racism

Environmental Racism

Environmental racism is a concept in the environmental justice movement that developed in the United States throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The term is used to describe environmental injustice that occurs within a racialized context both in practice and policy. The Litigation Group assists members with litigation involving environmental racism on behalf of individuals and communities using ordinances, statutes, and common law.

Group History

The Environmental Racism Litigation Group was formed at the 2021 Annual Convention. Members will have access to a Document Library and list server. The group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions and plans to host education programs and meetings throughout the year.

Dues: $100 per member annually
