Abstract

This MQP was an inquiry into the formulation of environmental justice (EJ) policies at the state level in the United States. It included research concerning the beginnings of the EJ movement, along with research into the EJ policies of the U.S. Federal Governmental. The focus was using the State of New Jersey's EJ program as a case study of how EJ has been incorporated into environmental policies by state-level policymakers. In order to analyze the EJ policies of New Jersey, a set of EJ indicators was developed that consisted of areas of EJ concern and possible policy mechanisms that could be used to address those concerns.
