Annotation:
This handbook is a companion to a more extensive report, entitled, Opportunities for Advancing Environmental Justice: An Analysis of U.S. EPA Statutory Authorities (ELI Statutory Analysis), which highlights the provisions in the environmental laws that could be used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to promote environmental justice. This handbook is written to be a practical guide for community residents who want to know how the environmental laws can be used to promote environment justice in their communities. It focuses on opportunities, legal rules, and tools that community residents have under environmental laws to protect their health, the health of their families and neighbors, and their environment. Unlike the more extensive companion report, it is assumed that most readers of this handbook will be unfamiliar with environmental laws and their legal consequences. To help readers follow the discussion, a glossary is provided and a list of acronyms used in the handbook can be found in Appendix F. In addition, text boxes with page numbers of the ELI Statutory Anaylsis appear throughout the handbook to direct the reader to the coresponding discussion and in-depth analysis in the companion report.
