County waste department to present Introduction to Environmental Justice class
October 7, 2022
How does the built environment impact Riverside County residents? Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. Fair treatment means that no population bears a disproportionate share of negative environmental consequences resulting from industrial, municipal, and commercial operations. Join us for an expanded view of the environment outside the scope of conservation with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.
