  • Bloomberg Law published this video item, entitled “The Long Fight for Environmental Justice Continues” – below is their description.

    The Biden Administration has pledged to make environmental justice a priority. However, across the country, the low-income and Black, Hispanic and indigenous communities that are disproportionately impacted by pollution have been waiting decades for action. The issue gained traction in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Forty years later, with varying efforts from multiple presidential administrations and one 5-4 Supreme Court opinion, impacted communities still have limited legal options to combat negative environmental impacts. In this video, we hear from University of New Mexico law professor Cliff Villa, and Bloomberg Law environment reporter Dean Scott about the fight for environmental justice.
