The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is asking for public comment on the draft EJ 2020 Action Agenda (EJ 2020) framework, the EPA's next overarching strategic plan for environmental justice.

EJ 2020 is a strategy to advance environmental justice through EPA's programs, policies and activities, and will support the cross-agency strategy on making a visible difference in environmentally overburdened, underserved, and economically-distressed communities. Stakeholders and the general public can review the framework and submit comments, from April 15, 2015 through June 15, 2015, by visiting
www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/ej2020.

The goals of EJ 2020 are to:

  • Deepen environmental justice practice within EPA programs to improve the health and environment of overburdened communities;
  • Collaborate with partners to expand our impact within communities; and
  • Demonstrate progress on outcomes that matter to communities.

"EJ 2020 will build on the foundation established by EPA's Plan EJ 2014, where we were able to improve on EJ in permitting, support community-based programs and develop science tools to access and facilitate grants," said Mustafa Santiago Ali, Senior Advisor to Administrator Gina McCarthy on Environmental Justice. "Although we've made good progress, there's still more to do. We need to strategically identify opportunities for targeted collaboration that benefit overburdened communities. Your voices, experiences and expertise can help shape a strategy that addresses the needs of your communities." Read Mustafa Ali’s blog for more about how EJ 2020 is about defining new goals for the coming years.
