Environmental Justice Leadership Forum

WE ACT’s Federal Policy Office coordinates the Environmental Justice Leadership Forum (EJ Forum), a national coalition of 60+ environmental justice organizations working together to advance climate justice and impact policy to ensure the protection and promotion of communities of color and low-income communities throughout the U.S.

The forum was initiated in 2008 in response to the emerging concerns around possible mitigation strategies and regulations that were being presented as options to reduce Greenhouse gas emissions, had the potential to amplify the disproportionate environmental burden on communities of color, and/or low-income people.

On July 29, 2020, the EJ Forum held its 2020 Summer Convening. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was conducted online.
