This series of panels hosted at UCLA School of Law in April 2021 examined environmental justice advocacy in the U.S., taking a wide view of efforts at the national level to address disparate outcomes in environmental protection. Panelists addressed the root causes of environmental inequity across a range of issue areas; assessed nascent efforts under President Biden’s administration to advance environmental justice; and developed ideas for further progress using federal law.
The symposium was hosted by the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA Law and co-sponsored by UCLA Law's Critical Race Studies Program, Promise Institute for Human Rights, Native Nations Law and Policy Center, Environmental Law Society, and Journal of Environmental Law and Policy.
