Environmental Justice Issues and Resources
The Toxic Wastes and Race and Toxic Wastes and Race at Twenty reports are the landmark study and follow-up study that demonstrated a direct correlation between the placement of toxic waste facilities and communities of poverty and/or color. This first report was the ground breaking study from which the term “environmental racism” was coined. Today, legislation and court cases refer to this term when addressing environmental issues of race and discrimination. Hard copies of both reports may be ordered from United Church of Christ Resources. Cost is free plus shipping & handling. Order the complete set through the UCC Store at 800.537.3394.
