Air Pollution and Environmental Justice

Not everyone is at equal risk to the harm air pollution can cause. Some existing health threats will intensify, and new health threats will emerge. People of color, and people in low-income communities, experience increased rates of adverse health impacts from climate change and air pollution due to a long history of environmental racism and the resulting health disparities. That’s why we work with neighborhoods most at risk to make a lasting change for future generations.
