The DEP Office of Environmental Justice’s (OEJ”) draft Environmental Justice Policy (“Policy”) is open for public comment. This draft Policy is intended to expand and improve the existing EJ Policy which has been in effect since 2004. The goal of this policy is to lay out a framework that the DEP can use to promote community engagement for environmental justice communities in the permitting process. We need your help in sending a letter to the Office of Environmental Justice to ensure our communities have meaningful involvement in the decisions which affect our environment, health, and safety.
